GUWAHATI, Feb 7: The 3rd Inter School Debate Competition for Rural Children organised by Al-Ameen Islamic Model School Alumni Association & Bagh Hazarika Centre for Cultural Studies was held at Goroimari in Kamrup Rural District on Saturday. The topic of the debate was ‘Social media is beneficial for the younger generation.’

Participating students, who came from Goroimari and adjacent areas, presented their arguments in lucid Assamese and English. At times, the debate rose to great standards and the performance of the young students was greeted with thunderous applause.

On completion of the programme, Dr vanil Barua, Director of Neurosurgery at GNRC Hospitals, Guwahati who acted as the Speaker of the Debate, lauded the efforts of the organisers in holding such a programme in a rural area.

Wahida Ahmed, Mukut Ahmed, Dr Shamim Ahmed, Nurul Laskar, Aman Wadud, Kaniz Fatima, Mumeniz Zaman, Salma Hussain, and Nidarsha Mahanta were present on the occasion as resource persons.
