Vandana Urang

An 18-year-old girl student from upper Assam’s Dibrugarh district will take over chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal’s Twitter handle on Friday.

Chief minister Sonowal will hand over his Twitter account to Vandana Urang, a student from Namrup College, in a symbolic gesture to support children’s empowerment and participation.

Vandana, who hails from the Namroop Tea Estate in Dibrugarh district, is a BA 1st-semester student at Namroop College.

She will take over the CM’s Twitter account between 9 – 11 am on Friday and shall share her opinion on #Reimagining Education in Assam, in a post-pandemic world.

Sonowal, who will be attending a crucial BJP State election meeting at that time with party president J P Nadda and other party leaders, is kind enough to allow Vandana to use his Twitter handle.
