Sarbananda Sonowal – Chief Minister – Assam:

  • Today, I am glad to inaugurate the restored heritage Sootea Police Station along with Ministers Keshab Mahanta, Ranjit Dutta, MP Pallab Lochan Das, MLAs Padma Hazarika & Promod Barthakur.
  • This monument will serve as a landmark of Assam’s contribution in India’s freedom struggle.
  • The heritage Sootea Police Station in Biswanath is a testament of Assam Police’s glorious history & an icon of our Independence movement, where the national flag was unfurled in 1942.
  • To protect it, I had sanctioned ₹ 50 lakh last year to the Directorate of Archaeology.
