LAKHIMPUR: "The year 2020 will be memorable in the history of the world for the breaking out of COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic situation, no doubt, affected the human civilization in every field in the year. But the situation taught every individual of the society to measure their capabilities of adjusting themselves in adverse situation. It is the great, positive achievement of the year against all negativities," stated Padma Shri Dr. Uddhav Kumar Bhorali while taking part in a cordial interactive programme convened by the North Lakhimpur regional unit of All Assam Students' Union (AASU) on Wednesday.
