LAKHIMPUR: In the run up to the 75th Independence Day celebration of India, the cadres of the National Cadet Corps (NCC) under Lakhimpur district have put their best foot forward. The NCC girl cadets of Lakhimpur Girls' College and LTK College have roughed it out for three days since August 10 to clean up the statues of Chaolung Syu-Ka-Pha, Lachit Borphukan and martyr Kamala Miri.
These statues are located at Tyag Kshetra in North Lakhimpur town. The 72 Assam Girls (Independent) Coy NCC at North Lakhimpur, under the leadership of Colonel Roby Tom and his team, have adopted these three statues for maintenance. The spirit of patriotism, cohesiveness and discipline in the NCC cadets and the engagement of their efforts that they have showcased in the last two days in safeguarding and upholding the legacy of the nation's ancestors and the heroes of the land of Assam is a heartening sight.
