JFA appeals to hoist National flag on I-Day

Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA) appeals to all patriotic nationals to hoist the National flag on forthcoming 71st Independence Day with an aim to honor the known and unknown martyrs of our freedom struggle against the British colonial forces. The JFA, in a statement, particularly urged all media organizations and institutions of the State to come forward to pay homage to the martyrs with any trepidation.

Defying the diktat of separatist militants, the media fraternity of the city will salute the Tri-color at Guwahati Press Club premises on 11 am of 15 August to pay respects to the martyrs, because of whose immense sacrifices we are a sovereign nation today. The participants including other patriotic citizens will also take out a rally after the flag hoisting ceremony.
