    Assam Guv To Celebrate Diwali With Jawans At Karimganj

    The Governor has decided to celebrate the festival of lights with the BSF jawans

    Assam Governor, Jagdish Mukhi will celebrate Diwali with the jawans of Latitila BOP in Karimganj district on October 27th, 2019.

    The Governor has decided to celebrate the festival of lights with the BSF jawans in recognition of their devotion to duty that they are performing far away from their homes. 

    Posted miles away from their homes and family, their duty to the motherland may have deprived them of celebrating Diwali. However, to help the jawans forget the alienation from their near and dear ones, Governor Mukhi decided to celebrate Diwali with them. 

    He also stated that as the jawans are acting as the “lights of fearlessness and instilling the sense of security among the people”, celebrations of the festival of lights would enable them to light up their spirit to serve the motherland.
