Assam Rifles organized two-day long Barak Safari concludes in Silchar
SILCHAR: Namami Brahmaputra and Namami Barak Festivals, a novel and noble initiative of the Sarbananda Sonowal-led government, have been hailed by all sections of people as the best way of paying our tributes to the twin mighty rivers, described as the lifeline of the two valleys. The festivals have been fostering and promoting the spirit of amity and brotherhood among the people of Assam, rising above all mean considerations. This has added a new dimension in the annals of the human history of the Northeast.
Perhaps keeping this spirit in mind, the Kadamtala Bn of the Assam Rifles under the aegis of Hqrs 22 (sect) Haflong organized a two-day long Barak Safari which concluded on Friday. The adventurous and exciting safari was flagged off by Col VPS Shekhawat, Commandant 37 Assam Rifles, from the village of Borobekra, Jiribam, Manipur. The safari came to an end at Kalighat, Masimpur, with the flagging in by Major General GAV Reddy, IGAR East at Kalighat, Masimpur.
The safari on boats sailing through the river Barak and the hill ranges of Jiribam and Cachar came down to the plains of the valley and finally to its destination. Tribals and non-tribals living on both sides of the river witnessed the caravan of jawans. The safari team had the best of time off their hard and strenuous busy schedule The villagers were also enlightened about the various initiatives of the government, particularly Fit India, and Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat programs.
