In this connection, a public function was organised at the Jayanta Hazarika Memorial Park and the �Bor Pukhuri� in the heart of the town where altogether 60 safai workers under the Mangaldai Municipal Board were felicitated with a letter of citation and a gamusa as recognition to their sincere service in keeping the town neat and clean.
