By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, March 21 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi flagged off a cycle rally �Call of the Brahmaputra� at his official residence at Khanapara here today.

The Chief Minister hoped that the message of love and goodwill carried by the participants would help streng-then the bond of unity and amity among the people of the North East States and that of the rest of the country.

The leader of the 20-member expedition, Sanjeev Shah said, �We have come with a message of love and goodwill that people from Maharashtra have for the people of the north-eastern region. We are also spreading the message that we are with the people of this region through thick and thin. At the same time, we are also going to carry the message that the Northeast is a beautiful place with beautiful and peace-loving people who are highly patriotic in nature.�

Shah said he was overwhelmed by the warmth shown by the people of the region. �We have met people from different colourful ethnic groups who not only embraced us but gave us gifts which we will preserve forever.�

Alaka Sarma, co-coordinator of the event, said, �It is very important that more and more people from other parts of the country visit the region. This will help remove a lot of misconceptions about the north-eastern region that exist across the country.�

Organised by Sarhad and Swanand Adventures, Pune, the 10-day cycling expedition was flagged off by Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh at Imphal on March 13 last.

After traversing a distance of 750 km across four States � Manipur, Nagaland, Assam and Meghalaya � the expedition will conclude at Shillong tomorrow, an official release said.
