Assam’s CM has laid the foundation stones for seven major infrastructure and construction projects in the state capital at an investment of ₹1,776 crore. These projects include the construction of a new Raj Bhavan at Kharghuli, a new Police Commissionerate at Khanapara, and the redevelopment of the Guwahati Police Reserve Campus.
In addition, the Chief Minister also launched the development of an integrated directorate complex at Betkuchi, which will house various government directorates currently spread across the city. The cost of this project is estimated to be ₹808 crore.
To address the growing need for infrastructure in Guwahati, the Chief Minister also announced the construction of two auditoriums in the city. One auditorium will be located inside the Srimanta Sankardeva Kalakshetra premises, while the other will be built at Khanapara. The latter auditorium, which will be the largest in the city with a capacity of 5,000, will be built at a cost of ₹185 crore.
These projects are part of the state's efforts to make Guwahati a Gateway to South-East Asia and boost the city's infrastructure. They are expected to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life for residents of Assam.
