By Correspondent

JORHAT, March 29 � Sahpuria, a village on the north west outskirts of the Jorhat town, is all set to bag the title as the first tobacco free village in the entire north eastern region of India. As many as 500 villagers took part in an oath taking ceremony in which they vowed to abjure tobacco and tobacco products. They also resolved to make the village tobacco free within a short span of time at the function held on the premises of Sahpuria LP School recently.

Dr Bhaktimaya Bhattacharyya, nodal officer of the District Tobacco Control Society, addressing to the public, said that this would be a rare achievement if the village could win the title as the tobacco free village.

Dr Malini, scientist of Jorhat, inaugurated the function.

When contacted, Dr Bhaktimaya Bhattacharyya told this correspondent that the women�s wing of the Jorhat College presented a slide show in the village recently. Thereafter, a house to house awareness campaign was done for three days in the village.
