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.
