RANGAMATTY (DERGAON), April 28 - At the time when security of women in the State has become a serious concern, two youths from Rangamati Tea Estate in Golaghat district have resolved to highlight the problem before the Prime Minister, among several others.
Ganesh Rabidas and Mrigen Rabidas will meet the Prime Minister after cycling from Rangamati to New Delhi tomorrow morning. The primary aim of their meeting Narendra Modi is to raise the problem of women�s security, rhino poaching, unabated influx of illegal immigrants, flood problem etc. in Assam and seek immediate solution.
Ganesh did his BA in Assamese from Melamora College while Mrigen too studied History in the same college. Talking to The Assam Tribune, Mrigen said that preparation for the programme was complete and they would embark on their journey at 9 am tomorrow from Rangamatty Bagan Bapuji LP School.
The flag off ceremony is likely to be attended by Agriculture Minister Atul Bora, MLA Mrinal Kumar Saikia, Bhabendranath Bharali, DC of Golaghat Gaurav Bothra, SP Manabendra Roy etc.
Minister Atul Bora presented the racing cycles to the youths and other people also helped them. According to Mrigen, they will have to cycle for 25 days at a stretch to reach New Delhi where they plan to cycle from 6 am to 4 pm every day.
They have already communicated with the PMO through email. The hard-working youths completed 110 km in 12 hours in 2014. Similarly, they also scaled Kanchenjunga Hill (16,500 metres) in 2016, for which they received certificates from the Darjeeling Mountain Association.
The youths have been spurred on by the local residents of Rangamatty in particular, and Golaghat district in general.
