RIST talent in dire need of help

His name is Bikash Bagwar. The son of a daily wager earner from Duliajan is a first year student of the Regional Institute of science and technology in Meghalaya Mile in Meghalaya.

In view of his poor family background, the RIST authority has waived the college fees based on his mark which stood at 71% in higher Secondary from Digboi College.

But the problems are not over for Bikash. Even after he was exempted from the college expense, he has facing grim crisis for food and lodging which is no less than Rs 3500 per month.

His family members and well wishers are waiting for help. Interested people are free to contract Jadumoni Saikia, Reporter Amar Asom. Contact Jadumoni Saikia, Ph- 09854032320 or email:
