Angarag’s helping hands

In a bid to give the flood hit people some sort of relief, popular singer Angaraag Mahanta has contributed Rs 17 lakh to Chief Minister's Relief Fund.
Mahanta handed over the cheque to chief minister Tarun Gogoi at the latter’s residence in Koinadhara on Thursday evening. Accepting the cheque Gogoi appreciated the singer saying that it would be a big help for the flood affected people.       

Mahanta, popularly known as Papon raised the amount through a musical concert held in New Delhi in October. The brain behind the initiatives was Bollywood music composer Vishal Dadlani and Papon himself along with popular artistes Arijit Singh, Harshdeep Kaur, Neeti Mohan and Shilpa Rao from the entertainment industry.
