Assams Majuli to get projects worth Rs 894 crore

Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said a series of projects worth Rs 894 crore will be implemented in Majuli, the world's largest river island.

On Sunday, he laid the foundation stone for the improvement and upgradation of a road from Balichapori in Majuli to Bongalmara in Lakhimpur. This includes the construction of two bridges over the Luit and Subansiri rivers. One of the new projects costing Rs 29 crore will address the perennial flood problem of the Majuli district. A ring bund will be built on the banks of the Brahmaputra from Jabarchuk to Haldhibari.

"The project is being implemented under the Government of Assam's flagship programme 'Asom Mala' at a cost of Rs 694 crore. The chief minister also handed over cheques to families affected by land acquisition for construction of the road to connect Balichapari to the bridge," said the official press release.

The CM also laid the foundation stone for the main campus of Majuli Cultural University at a cost of Rs 51 crore. It is for the upgradation of the Government Industrial Training Institute at Bangaon and a central mid-day meal kitchen.

He further said that Majuli is a land known for its spirituality, tradition, and culture. It is experiencing rapid progress which brings serious challenges for the people to maintain their unique identity. "The government is working to utilise technology in such a manner that people can avail various services in a contactless manner."
