Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 31, 2009

Guwahati, Oct 30 (PTI) Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today paid homage to victims of serial blasts that claimed more than 90 lives and left nearly 500 injured on this day last year.

The state government observed one minute’s silence to mourn the victims of the devastating blast as the chief minister offered tributes to victims at the worst-hit Ganeshguri blast site here.

Memorial services were held at all the blast sites in Guwahati, Barpeta Road and Kokrajhar.

Bodoland Territorial Council Chief Hagrama Mohilary announced that a monument would be constructed in memory of the 20 blast victims who lost their lives in the Kokrajhar Bazaar blast.

The day was marked by prayer meetings, blood donations and candle-light vigils throughout the state.
