Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said that this park has been completed within 7 months of the government and setting up of another such park at Hengrabari would also be completed soon while the botanical garden at Fancy Bazaar old jail campus will be opened by 2023. The state government has been constantly striving towards developing open spaces to turn Guwahati into a modern city with lots of greenery and recreational avenues and with these parks, Guwahati will have 5 big parks, he added.

“We are also in the process of shifting all government offices to an Integrated Directorate Complex at Lakhra in the city and setting up parks in those vacated office premises. Pursuing our vision of a modern city with healthy living spaces, we also want to build indoor stadiums, swimming pools, sports complexes in all four constituencies of Guwahati” he informed.      

The Chief Minister also asserted that massive infrastructure projects are in the pipeline for the city as all ongoing flyovers projects in Guwahati will be completed before schedule.

He urged the local communities, specially the womenfolk, to take up responsibility of maintaining these parks and keeping a strict watch over them so that these parks can be utilised for engaging the children and youths in productive activities while keeping them away from drugs and other bad habits.
