On the auspicious occasion of the 575th birth anniversary of Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardev, Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday inaugurated a number of infrastructural projects at Batadrava Thaan costing a total of ₹22 crores. Foundation stones for the projects inaugurated today — a Satriya Sora, a conference hall, the Damodar Ata Tourist Guest House and the office complex — were laid on April 16, 2021, thus leading to the completion of their construction in just 17 months. This apart, Chief Minister Dr. Sarma today also formally launched the year-long celebration of the 575th birth anniversary celebration of Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardev.
