- The 400th anniversary celebrations of Lachit Borphukan were launched by former President Ram Nath Kovind in February
- “Lachit Borphukan was an Ahom hero, an Assamese hero, an Indian hero and a world hero,” said Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
- He further called on the people of Assam to light an earthen lamp on November 24, the birth anniversary of the legendary 17th century army general Ahom.
Speaking to the media, Sarma said the government of Assam will hold a series of events in the national capital from November 23-25. These events will bring together dignitaries from all walks of life.
Lachit Barphukan is remembered as one of the greatest army commanders in the kingdom of Ahom. Known for leading the Battle of Saraighat on the Brahmaputra in 1671, he foiled a never-ending attempt by Mughal forces led by Raja Ramsingh-I to retake Assam.
To mark the 400th birthday of the great army general Ahom, the government of Assam last month launched a mobile app and web portal.
The portal and mobile app has been designed for people in Assam and out of the state including foreign countries to show their gratitude to Lachit Barphukan in the form of articles and trials.
