Raksha Bandhan celebrated
A statement issued by the organisation’s president Dr Kamala Kanta Saharia and general secretary Partha Pratim Das said that as many as one hundred border outposts (BOPs) along the borders with Bhutan and Bangladesh, including 18 floating BOPs on river Brahmaputra, were covered under the Raksha Bandhan programme.
“The prime objective of organising the programme was to send out a message to the whole world that the security personnel on duty along the borders are not alone. The programme also intended to make the common people in general and the residents of the border areas in particular aware about the issues relating to the vulnerable border areas,” said the statement.
Altogether 1,000 volunteers of the State tied Rakhi to as many as 15,000 soldiers. The soldiers, besides offering sweets and other gifts to their sisters, also sang and danced together to make the occasion a memorable one.
