Prime Minister Modi on Thursday greeted people on the 400th birth anniversary of Lachit Borphukan, and said he epitomised unparalleled courage.
“Greetings on Lachit Diwas. This Lachit Diwas is special because we mark the 400th birth anniversary of the great Lachit Borphukan,” Modi said in a tweet.
Several Union ministers, including Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Kiren Rijiju and Dharmendra Pradhan, have also paid tributes to Barphukan.

SC To Hear NIA’s Appeal Against Teltumbde Bail
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear on Friday an appeal by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) against the bail granted to scholar-activist Anand Teltumbde in the Elgar Parishad-Maoist links case.
A bench, headed by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud, took note of the submissions by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta that the stay on the operation on the high court’s bail order is for a week only and the matter needed urgent hearing.
The solicitor general, at the outset, said the NIA has filed the appeal and the plea has been numbered and may be listed for an urgent hearing.
“Let us hear this at 12.45 pm (today itself),” said the bench which also comprised justices Hima Kohli and J B Pardiwala to which the law officer said, “My colleague, who is not present today, will argue. Please hear it (appeal) on Thursday.” “We will hear it on Friday,” the CJI then said.
Lawyer Aparna Bhat, appearing for Teltumbde, said she was appearing on caveat and she be given the copy of the NIA’s plea.
