SILCHAR, June 25 - Binita Saha, Sumita Roy and Aditya Dutta, all from Silchar, brought laurels to Barak valley by securing positions in the merit list in the HS examination. The rank holders are all from Commerce stream.
While Binita stood third with 466 marks from Ramanuj Gupta Junior College, her classmate from the same college, Aditya Dutta, bagged the 9th rank with 452 marks and both wish to become Chartered Accountants.
Sumita Roy, the 8th rank holder from Vivekananda Junior College, scored 453, and aspires to become an entrepreneur. One common thread that binds all three is their keen interest in Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s call for Atmanirbhar Bharat by focussing on indigenous production in the country.
�I wish our country becomes a developed nation and the call for Atmanirbhar Bharat will surely add fillip to the objective,� feels Binita. Aditya added, �Discarding Chinese products has begun and the day is not far when India will boast of its own materials. The move towards self-reliance shall usher in the much-needed change.� Sumita Roy told The Assam Tribune, �The call for Atmanirbhar Bharat will open new avenues of work and help those who are willing to stand up on their own and give back to the society as well.�
