Governor felicitates mountaineer Anshu

Assam Governor Banwarilal Purohit felicitated Anshu Jamsenpa, who has climbed to the peak of Mount Everest twice in five days and making a world record by her feat, at a function held at Raj Bhavan on Friday.

Hailing the feat of the mountaineer, Purohit said, “The nation in general and Northeast in particular is proud of the enviable record of Anshu Jamsenpa who unfurled the Tricolour at the peak of Mount Everest. Climbing the Mount Everest, the world’s tallest peak is indeed an extraordinary endeavour, climbing it twice in five days is something only the great can do. My commendation to the grit and dedication of Anshu Jamsenpa on becoming the first woman to scale the peak for fourth time. Not only Arunachal Pradesh, the country as a whole is proud of Anshu Jamsenpa”.

He also said that Anshu is a source of motivation to other mountaineers who can emulate her achievement to scale any height in life. She will meet the press persons at Guwahati Press Club on Saturday morning at 11 am.
