The members of the Army in Northeast India who took part in the liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971 will be honored by the Government of Assam on 23 April. Assam Chief Minister Himanta Bishwasharma said that Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh would be present as the chief guest at the award ceremony. Army members will be rewarded.
Biswas Sharma said that besides training the freedom fighters of the freedom fighters in the 1971 war, many people from North East India also fought against the Pakistani forces. But not much is heard of them. So the matter needs to be brought before the people. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Before and after winning the elections in 2021, Himanta Bishwasharma repeatedly criticized the people of the Bengali Muslim community living in Assam. This arrangement of the Assam government has surprised many in the Bengali Muslim community there.
