In his speech, Borgoyary said the schools in the border areas lacked facilities and their students got little chance to go outside in order to acquire knowledge in advanced cities. He thanked the SSB for organizing the educatiol tour for the students of remote border areas of Kokrajhar and Chirang. He hoped that the students would get the opportunity to learn many new things in New Delhi and Agra, besides coming in contact with the people of that part of the country. He also said the students of remote places had limited knowledge and ideas as they were confined to a small area.
