TEZPUR, May 31 � �After India�s independence, great Assamese figure Gopinath Bardoloi worked closely with Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel to secure the sovereignty of Assam against China on the one hand and East Pakistan on the other. He also helped to organise the rehabilitation of millions of Hindu refugees who had fled East Pakistan due to widespread violence and intimidation in the aftermath of the Partition,� said former Governor of Assam and Jammu & Kashmir Lt Gen (retd) SK Sinha.

Addressing an oration on the life and contributions of Lokapriya Gopinath Bardoloi at the Tezpur University here today, Sinha observed that the Bharat Ratna awardee�s work �formed the basis for ensuring communal harmony, democracy and stability which effectively kept Assam secure and progressive right up to the 1971 war for East Pakistan�s independence.�
