The events were aimed to deepen a sense of patriotism in people and motivate the youth to join the armed forces.

The weapons' display on Thursday included modern assault rifles, surveillance systems, and combat equipment, which was attended by the local people in large numbers. The Defence PRO in Guwahati said the event provided the locals, especially children and youth, an opportunity to know the Indian Army and its capabilities.
