DIBRUGARH: The people celebrated the festival of Kongali Bihu or Kati Bihu here by lighting a lamp in a paddy field and in front of tulsi (Basil) plant. The women's cell of the Dibrugarh unit Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) celebrated the Kati Bihu in traditional gaiety.
Dibrugarh BJP Mohila Morcha general secretary Mamun Gogoi and her team celebrated the festival in somewhat uncommon way by holding a function at the auditorium of Amolapatty Natya Mandir on Monday by distributing a tulsi (Basil) plant among the members and those who took part in the function.
The villagers of Na Pam Than Gaon, however, lamented that this year they were deprived of lighting a traditional earthen lamp in their paddy fields due to the unprecedented dry season. They called upon the government to help them overcome the situation.
