In order to discuss this problem, a public meeting was held in the satra on June 30 under the stewardship of the Satradhikar Sri Sri Lechem Ch Goswami. Former president of Asam Moran Sabha, Someswar Moran, explained the objectives of the meeting. The meeting unanimously decided to shift the Satra to a suitable place.

The committee will take necessary steps to shift the Satra to a safer and suitable location.
