Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal announced on Friday, November 24 that a chapter on the life and accomplishments of Lachit Borphukan, the 17th Century warrior of Assam would be included in the school curriculum soon.
Speaking as Chief Guest in the Lachit Divas celebration organized by Cultural Affairs Department at Brahmaputra riverfront at Fancy Bazar in the city, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal informed that the young generation must be taught about the great son of the soil.

“Lachit Borphukan is one of the best examples of heroism and patriotism in world history. People across the country and especially the youth must know his heroic deeds and how he fought for his motherland even when he was severely ill. The youth must emulate his ideals and get inspired by his vision and patriotism,” CM Sonowal said.
