|Govt plans development projects for upper Assam|
GUWAHATI, Nov 19 - In a bid to realise the aspirations of Ahom, Moran, Motok and Chutia communities living in the upper Assam districts of Sivasagar, Charaideo, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia, the State government would soon take up various projects in a time-bound manner.
The projects to be implemented would focus on preservation of historical sites, building sports and cultural infrastructure as well as taking up skill development programmes to generate livelihood opportunities among the Ahom, Moran, Motok and Chutia communities living in these four districts.
Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal in a meeting held at his office conference room today directed deputy commissioners of the respective districts to prepare plans which are sustainable. Sonowal said the sports and cultural complexes to be built in the four districts would be named after the legendary personalities of these four communities.
Moreover, the fund to be utilised for preservation of the historical sites would be released over and above the already earmarked budgetary allocation.
Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, while taking part in the discussion, said that the transformation & development department would prepare a broad guideline on the exact nature of schemes to be taken up by the districts.
