Assam Governor Jagadish Mukhi on

Friday hailed the achievements of the armed forces during

various wars.

The efforts of the armed forces to stop-cross border

terrorism is commendable, he said while speaking on the

occasion of Armed Forces Flag Day at the Raj Bhawan here.

"Many of our armed forces personnel have lost their

valuable lives on the line of duty and due recognition should

be given to them," Mukhi said.

The flag day also plays an important role in

collecting donations for Armed Forces Flag Day Fund which is

the lifeline for instituting welfare measures and

rehabilitation of the ex-servicemen.

The day provides an opportunity to connect with armed

forces personnel, their families and to reciprocate by

contributing generously to Armed Forces Flag Day Fund to

ensure welfare and rehabilitation of war widows, war wounded

and dependants of our fallen soldiers and ex-servicemen, he


The Armed Forces Flag Day is observed on December 7

every year across the country since 1949 with an aim to honour

the martyrs and the men in uniform.
