SIVASAGAR, March 1 - An internationally reputed Thai cultural troupe and some cultural icons of the country will participate in the three-day 2nd International Sivasagar Siva Festival beginning on Sunday.

Most of the ethnic groups of the State will present programmes and a historic mela will be held around the 300 years old famous Siva, Devi and Bishnu temples on the southern bank of the sprawling 129 bigha Sivasagar Borpukhuri. Hundreds of traders and vendors from across the land flock to the temple premises for participating in the mela. The number of devotees and tourists for the mela is expected to be very high this year due to improved connectivity with the north bank via the Bogibeel rail-cum-road bridge near Dibrugrah and also the Dhola-Sadiya bridge in Tinsukia district.

Addressing the media at Sukapha Bhawan today, Dr Laksmanan S, DC, Sivasagar and president of the organising committee said that tourism development through a national or international festival is a long-term plan which needs cooperation and support of all stakeholders. He called upon the local media also to contribute stories of the festival or local tourism prospects in national dailies. From among the mediapersons Inamul Hazarika, Mujaheed Ali, Bhairov Munda, Firoj Khan, Apurba Bhunya and leading citizen Manoj Borthakur urged the organisers to look into the stall allotment complaints and the much needed transparency over the whole mechanism.
