AASU peeved over small size of Dr Hazarika�s memorial

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 1 - The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today expressed its dissatisfaction over Dr Bhupen Hazarika�s memorial being created on a �small plot� of five bighas of land.

The students� body argued that when the Gauhati University was ready to provide a vast area for a sprawling memorial of the bard, the Government should not have made a restricted plan.

AASU president Dipanka Kumar Nath and chief adviser Dr Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharyya said that the samadhisthal must match the grandeur of the music maestro. �Even tourists from other countries must get a glimpse of all his priceless works while visiting his memorial. We are not against whatever has been constructed, but there must be a timebound expansion plan,� said Bhattacharyya.

Nath also said that the Gauhati University was ready to give up to 60 bighas of land having beautiful landscape, which should be judiciously utilised. Even the common people would come forward to support such a project.

Immortal songs of the legendary bard, sung by best singers of colleges and universities across the State were released today in MP3 format by educationist Dr Amarjyoti Choudhury, musician Ramen Barua and former Vice Chancellor of Gauhati University, Dr Akhil Medhi.
