Assam: ‘Ride of Pride’ bike rally reaches Dibrugarh

The “Ride of Pride” bike rally received a rousing welcome Friday after it reached upper Assam’s Dibrugarh.

The “Ride of Pride” was organised to celebrate the momentous occasion of winning the prestigious President’s Colour Award by the Assam Police.

The team led by Assistant Inspector General (AIG) of police Anand Mishra was received at the Dibrugarh superintendent of police office by Deputy SP Shwetank Mishra on their arrival.

Speaking to media persons, Anand Mishra said, “The rally was kick-started from Dhubri district on May 1 and today we have reached Dibrugarh. We are getting good support from the public. We have been travelling all the districts of Assam and people are showing blessings to us,”.

The ‘Ride of Pride’ was flagged off from Dhubri on May 2 by the director-general of police Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta. The 8-day ride traversing through 27 districts across the state will cover a total distance of 2,055 km.
Earlier the team also made a brief stop at the Jagannath temple near the Dibrugarh town bypass.

A brief welcome event was also held at the SP office premises where Dibrugarh deputy commissioner Biswajit Pegu, CRPF DIG Rajiv Ranjan, and other senior officials were present.

Assam Police happens to be only the 10th State Police force in the country to have been conferred with the prestigious President’s Colour Award. Union Home Minister Amit Shah will present the Presidents’ Colour Award to the Assam Police at an event in Guwahati on May 10.

The President’s Colour Award is the highest honour that can be bestowed upon any military unit of India. It is also known as ′Nishaan′ which is an emblem that will be worn by all unit officers on the left-hand sleeve of their uniform.
