Celebrations at Tirupati

North East People Defy Militants call for Bandh and Partcipate in Independence Day Celebrations
Thousands of people across the restive northeast Sunday defied a shutdown called by separatists and attended India's Independence Day celebrations while the chief ministers urged the rebels groups to come for talks.

'We are happy indeed to see people rejecting calls by some militant groups to boycott the celebrations and coming out in large numbers to attend the national day function,' acting Assam Chief Minister Bhumidhar Barman said soon after unfurling the national flag at a celebration here.

Barman is officiating as chief minister in the absence of Tarun Gogoi, who is recuperating in Mumbai after three heart surgeries earlier this month. 'Despite attempts by militants to stage violent attacks, our security forces managed to foil their designs with the active support and cooperation of the people,' Barman said.
