As per sources, Bhagyadeep Rajgarh, son of a tea garden worker from Deoriting tea estate and a student of Bakta Barbam Higher Secondary School will symbolically hold the position of the head of the administration.
He will review various ongoing government-run development programmes. For the first time in the history of Assam, a boy will become the district’s DC, even if it is symbolic and just for a day.
It is learnt that Bhagyadeep has availed this benefit through Assam Government’s innovative scheme AAROHAN.
Last year in the month of June, Assam Cabinet had approved the AROHAN scheme to provide guidance to students and improved their skills to 8750 students of Class IX with innate talents for four years up to Class XII. These students will be selected from Govt/provincialised schools and would be continuously mentored by select persons.
