The rally was part of a regularly executed initiative to reach out to the veterans’ fraternity as well as Veer Naris and help in amelioration of their problems.
The day-long rally was a medium for the ex-servicemen to get a platform for not only solving their issues regarding documentation and pension disbursal, but also to interact with the district administration.
More than 1100 veterans and Veer Naris participated in the rally.
Maj Gen Sanjeev Khatri, General Officer Commanding (GOC) of the Red Horn Division and Brig Gagan Deep, Commander, Lower Assam, interacted with all the veterans and assured them of support in all spheres, stated a defence press communique.
There were stalls such as ESM Updation Centre, Assam Regiment Records, AWPO, ZSWO (Goalpara), Army Recruiting Office, Pension Desks, Zila Sainik Board, Civil Welfare Agencies and other agencies of relevance to the veterans and Veer Naris.
A medical camp was also conducted at the venue on the occasion.
The Veer Naris and physically challenged veterans were felicitated by the Chief Guest.
Dog show, martial art display, Bhangra and Garhwali Folk Dance were also organised by the units of Lower Assam Brigade to entertain and convey our gratitude to complete ex-servicemen fraternity, it added.
