GUWAHATI: In order to learn and get inspired by the sacrifices of our freedom fighters, the Assam government have decided to send at least 1,000 youths to the Cellular Jail located in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

The Cellular Jail, also known as Kālā Pānī, was a colonial prison in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India.

The prison was used by the British government for the purpose of exiling political prisoners to the remote archipelago.

On the eve of the Indian's 76th Independence Day, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said, "I pay homage to countless freedom fighters who sacrificed a lot for our motherland."

Further, the CM said that ₹10,000 crores will be provided for improving infrastructure in all Govt High & Higher Secondary schools in Assam.

Initiating a new scheme for flood mitigation via utilisation of water bodies, the state government aims to provide pattas to people residing in VGR lands for more than a generation and in lands with annual pattas.

Speaking about the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' movement, Sarma said self-help groups in the state have sold 42 lakh flags with a total cost of around 17 crores.

The 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign commenced on Saturday and will run till today. The programme envisages inspiring Indians everywhere to hoist the national flag at their homes. The aim of the programme is to make the relationship with the national flag a more personal one rather than just keeping it formal or institutional.
