Akhil Gogoi Suggests Establishing an International Center for Local Businesses. In a letter addressed to Assam’s chief minister, imprisoned peasant activist and Sivasagar Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) Akhil Gogoi proposed. That the establishment of an international market for Assam’s local businesses on the vacant old jail campus premise in Guwahati’s Fancy Bazar area.
Akhil Gogoi said that the location is more ideal for a commercial hub than a botanical park. Due to this, it should be said that Fancy Bazar has been the state’s commercial hub for some time now.
On June 5, CM Sarma presided over a meeting with Guwahati Development Department minister Ashok Singhal. Within three months, a botanical garden should be constructed on the old jail site. In his letter, Akhil Gogoi said that the goal of establishing a botanical garden in three months was implausible.
Gogoi said, “Fancy Bazaar is Assam’s commercial center. It serves as the nerve hub for practically all market activity in Northeast India. Indigenous enterprises and industries, on the other hand, do not even have a sliver of this market.”
He emphasized that there is a new generation of local businesses. Where people and entrepreneurs would gain significantly from a presence at Fancy Bazar.
“Of the 56 bighas of land on the former prison campus, ten should be utilized for parking and the remainder as a commercial center to support local companies and others in the world market.”
“Simply planting a few plants in a hurry does not imply the establishment of a botanical garden…
As a result, I encourage you to build an international market center for Assam’s local firms and industries. “According to Gogoi’s letter.
However, the botanical park build on the riverfront. Or at the state zoo, or on any of Guwahati’s hilltops, he noted.
