Decision to dredge Brahmaputra hailed|
GUWAHATI, Jan 9 - Voluntary organisation Brahmaputra Management and Development has hailed the Government decision to initiate dredging of the Brahmaputra riverbed during the current month as the best gift to the people of the State.
The area of land being reclaimed thus from the Brahmaputra riverbed would be over five lakh hectares. There should be a proper plan to utilise this area of land in order to stimulate economic growth of the State.
The Government should implement the project in the public-private partnership mode, it said, reasoning, this will help a large number of indigenous youth of the State to take part in the project and thereby improve their fortunes, said the voluntary organisation.
