NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday paid tributes to Assam’s celebrated warrior Lachit Borphukan on his 400th birth anniversary, and said the leader epitomised unparalleled courage.

“Greetings on Lachit Diwas.

The three-day long celebrations began on Wednesday in New Delhi. Union Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman had inaugurated exhibition on this occasion highlighting the life and achievement of Ahom dynasty and Lachit Borphukan among others.

According to a statement by the PMO, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the closing ceremony of the year long celebrations of the leader’s 400th birth anniversary on 25 November. A book on Lachit Borphukan will be released and a documentary on the great warrior will also be screened at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi.
