CM reviews ongoing project Bhupen Hazarika’s memorial

Three years have passed since the music maestro and cultural icon of Assam Dr Bhupen Hazarika left for his heavenly abode, but the State is yet to get a full-fledged memorial for the legend who secured his place in the hearts of millions across the globe.

Waiting to get a Samadhi Kshetra (cremation ground) as majestic as Rajghat, people of the State and several public organizations have stood in unison blaming the State government for the inordinate delay. Though the government has started construction work on five bighas of land at Jalukbari, people are wary about getting ‘too little too late’ in the memory of Bhupenda.

Well aware of the public sentiment brewing against it, the State government has announced that the Samadhi Kshetra would be completed and opened up for the common people by the death anniversary of Dr Hazarika in 2015.

Talking to media, Pranati Phukan, Minister of Cultural Affairs, Assam, reiterated the government’s pledge to complete the project by November 2015. “The initial process of project designing, tenders and architectural decisions are not visible on the ground.  , the construction work of the boundary wall, gate and gumbaz to be constructed on the site of cremation, has already started,” she said.
