The 64th birth anniversary of Bodofa Upendra Nath Brahma was observed on Tuesday across Assam amid the 21-day nationwide lockdown.

The  All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU), adhering to the norms of social distancing, observed that day as Student Day.

The student body urged everyone to take all the precautionary measures at the time of medical emergency.

Speaking on the occasion ABSU general secretary Lawrence Islary said, ” Bodofa Upendra Nath Brahma had brought about remarkable changes in the lives of the downtrodden.”

“He was a leader not only of the Bodos but also for the students and the underprivileged who believed in non-violence,” Islary added.

“He dreamt of literate society with the motto of living and let live. He is one of the greatest visionary leaders of the region,” Islary added.

He further urged the students to stay indoors amid the lockdown period and make the best use of the time.

“This is the best time to stay home and read your school curriculum. Brush your knowledge and clear all your doubts during this period,” Islary added.

He further asked each and everyone to follow the government directions to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
