Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, while on his visit to the old Deputy Commissioner’s (DC) bungalow on Tuesday said the first step towards his dream for the city that he had as the minister of development in 2003, has manifested today.
The CM was finalizing the locations for beautification works along the Brahmaputra today. He was accompanied by officials of the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) on his visit.
Speaking there, CM Sarma mentioned that there will be no buildings on the stretch starting from the Sukreswar temple to the Chief Justice Residence.
He also said that Padum Pukhuri near the old DC office will be beautifully rebuilt.
“The land area allocated for the DC office will be used for beautification works,” said the Assam CM.
Speaking further, he said, “The DC office will be shifted permanently to Rupnagar. The area around the GMC office will also be developed.”
He then went on to mention that the old GMC office building will be preserved as a historic venue.
