JFA mourns untimely demise of Dhanjit Kakati

Guwahati: Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA) mourned the untimely demise of former journalist Dhanjit Kakati after a prolonged illness on 25 July 2020. Recognized as a dedicated social activist, Kakati used to work for a number of newspapers with full commitments to the medium. Kakati, 65, left behind his wife, a daughter, a host of relatives and well-wishers.

“Dhanjit Kakati actively participated in various citizens’ meets, which were organized by JFA in different occasions. His observations to various perennial problems of Guwahati including the flash-flood, social security, sustainable urban development, etc were appreciated by everyone and those were treated as valuable inputs to the concerned authority too,” said a JFA statement.

It added that Kakati also participated in the auspicious celebrations of Independence Day and Republic Day at the premises of Guwahati Press Club defying the diktat of separatist armed militants, as JFA used to call the journalists and patriotic citizens to grace the occasions with an aim to honour countless martyrs of India’s freedom struggle hoisting the national Tri-colour.
