SIVASAGAR, Sept 28 � Sahitya Akademi award winner Yese Dorje Thongsi was awarded the Dr Moidul Islam Sahitya Award 2014 at a grand function held at Rangpur Jyoti Club here on Saturday.
The award presentation ceremony was jointly organised by Arunudoy Sahitya Sabha and Dr Moidul Islam Bora Smriti Raksha Samiti.
Receiving the award from Asam Sahitya Sabha president Imran Shah, Dorje said that though Assam and Arunachal are two separate States, they share a cordial relation. �Both the States are dependent on each other in various fields. But the present border dispute has created panic among the people of both the States,� he said.
�This situation has arisen just because of misunderstanding of a few people, and political conspiracy. This row can only be solved by political discussions,� said the celebrated writer urging the media to be aware while reporting and publishing news regarding this burning issue.
Speaking on the occasion, Imran Shah hoped that Dr Moidul Islam Bora Sahitya Award would one day become one of the best awards in the State.
The award presentation ceremony was also attended by Deori Sahitya Sabha president Ratneswar Deori, ATASU advisor Aswini Chetia, former Sivasagar Municipal Board chairman Rana Khan, poet Prema Gogoi and others.
The ceremony was anchored by Monirul Islam Bora, while Safikur Rahman stated the objective of the function.
