BISWANATH CHARIALI, Dec 30 - �Lack of infrastructure has become a hindrance in the development of tourism in Assam. We have failed to showcase our resources to the world. Every quarter, including Government and general public, has a big role to play in this respect to improve the scenario�.

This was observed by renowned litterateur and researcher Dr Pushpa Gogoi here on Tuesday in the concluding ceremony of the three-day long Biswanath Festival, 2015, while inaugurating the souvenir Mahapeeth edited by Bhupen Dadhara.

Citing examples of China and Thailand, Dr Gogoi added that those countries had succeeded to garner huge amount of money from the tourists who visit them from all over the world only through exhibiting their resources.

The ceremony was presided over by SDO (C), Biswanath, Pallav Gopal Jha, who was also the president of the organising committee. Taking part as the guest of honour, Loknath Sharma, SCERT Director, underlined the need of doing away with the defects at the socio-economic and intellectual levels in our society.

Former minister Noorjamal Sarker, Biswanath MLA Prabin Hazarika, Biswanath Municipality Chairperson Ruli Sharma, historian Dr Nityananda Gogoi, litterateur Phatik Chandra Hazarka playwright Tarun Saikia, social workers Apurva Kr Das, Swaraj Hazarika, among others, spoke a few words in the ceremony conducted by Deepak Das.

The prize distribution ceremony was conducted by Manish Thakur, BEEO, Behali Education Block. The cultural night in the evening was inaugurated by Narayan Konwar, Commissioner, Guwahati Municipality Corporation.

In his inaugural address, Konwar expressed the hope that Biswanath Festival would be able to draw tourists to this historically town.

Earlier, Additional Chief Secretary, Home and Political Department, MGVK Bhanu, inaugurated the boat race held on the occasion at Biswanath Ghat. He assured that that the State Government would provide all kinds of help for the development of tourism in Biswanath.
