On 4th November, Deputy Resident Commissioner, Sri Devasish Sharma as a chief guest garlanded the portrait of Sadhu Thakur in a simple ceremony, organised by Bishnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Samittee, Mumbai. While addressing the small gathering, Sharma talked about the purpose of having the Assam Bhavan in Mumbai. He emphasised the need of volunteers to come forward and guide the cancer patients at Tata Memorial Hospital for smooth formalities i.e., registration, appointments, tests etc. He stressed that the money is not a problem, but there is dire shortage of manpower.
