New Delhi, Mar 19 (UNI) Assam Governor Gulab Chand Kataria, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, ministers and senior officials of the state government visited the National War Memorial here on Sunday and paid homage to the brave hearts who laid down their lives for the country.
The Governor and CM laid floral wreaths, and later went round the complex where the names of the martyrs are inscribed in the 'Wall of Valour'.
Paying tribute to the brave hearts who laid down their lives for safeguarding the territorial integrity of the nation, the CM said, "The War Memorial would inspire and motivate the young generation to make sacrifices for the sake of the motherland."

Apprising the same, Sarma in a tweet later wrote, "The iconic War Memorial is a fine tribute to the valor of our war heroes. We're forever indebted to their supreme sacrifice and dedication that earned us our pride."

They visited the National Police Museum.
Taking to the micro blogging site, Sarma said, "The National Police Memorial in New Delhi is a fine ode to the valiant police personnel. Our eternal gratitude to their valor."
They also visited the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya and went round the rare exhibits of all Prime Ministers on display for almost two hours.
The decision to visit the iconic landmarks in the national capital was taken at a Cabinet meeting held on January 23 this year.
The visit to the iconic memorials comes close on the heels of 400th birth anniversary celebrations of one of India's greatest military heroes, Lachit Barphukan in Assam and in the national capital in November last year.
Himanta Biswa Sarma-led BJP government had undertaken the initiative to take Ahom General Lachit Barphukan to a wider audience to perpetuate the hallowed memory of the legendary warrior both within and outside the state.
