Assam Rifles, under the aegis of Headquarters Inspector General Assam Rifles (South), joined hands with locals in restoring the road link between Samulamlan and Tuiring villages of Churachandpur district which was non-functional due to heavy rains in the recent past.
The village chief of Langza, which is a remote village, approached the Assam Rifles Battalion to get the road and a heavily damaged culvert repaired. Langza village along with villages of Malamphei, Songpher, Langsei, Nounthang Tampak, Samulamlan, Takheihakbi, Lalumbung, Lungthang and Bungsanglen depend on this road link for sustenance.
The Assam Rifles took the initiative and provided necessary assistance to the villagers to restore the road connectivity thereby enabling movement of essential supplies to these villages, the IGAR(S) stated in a release.
The initiative by the Assam Rifles displayed that Assam Rifles will always be standing with the people of Northeast, in line with their motto “Sentinels of North East”.
Moreover, the Assam Rifles, under the aegis of IGAR(S), and Royal Riders club of Chandel jointly distributed stationery items and sports equipment to around 45 children of Khoibu Centre village of Tengnoupal district.
The event was attended by the Village Council Members and teachers and at the culmination sweets distributed to the children further heightened their joy, the IGAR(S) said.
The event, during the present times when the state is gradually moving towards normalcy, underscores the commitment of Assam Rifles, to not only protecting the local communities but also working towards their betterment, the IGAR(S) stated.
