DIPHU — The much-awaited visit of President of India Droupadi Murmu to the golden jubilee celebrations of the Karbi Youth Festival (KYF) at Taralangso on Wednesday had to be cancelled due to inclement weather conditions.

Her helicopter could not land at the helipad in Taralangso and had to be diverted to Guwahati Airport, following which she returned to Delhi.

The news of the cancellation was confirmed only at 1:30 pm, leaving the organisers and crowds deeply dejected.

The Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, who was present at the venue, expressed regret over the situation but assured that the president can be invited again to KYF in the future. He also announced an annual budget allocation of INR 3 crore for organising the festival.
