The committee has already given the final touches to 100 valuable books for release besides constructing six life size statues of Padmanath Gohainbaruah, Lakshminath Bezbaroa, Hemchandra Boruah, Sarat Chandra Goswami, Bhupen Hazarika and Mamoni Raisom Goswami which are to be installed in different parts of the town during the session. The reception committee president Sonaram Boruah told media persons that the session will be a historic one as it will contribute to the life of the people of the region in a permanent way.

Tasa informed the committee that OIL, Duliajan has already released Rs 50 lakh to Asam Sahitya Sabha central committee.

Sivasagar Deputy Commissioner, Narayan Konwar, has been in constant touch with the reception committee and is regularly monitoring the progress of the works. The biggest challenge before the administration is widening and repairing the dilapidated roads of Sivasagar.

The principal secretary in-charge Aboni Mohan Saharia through a release, appealed to all sections to put aside all differences and work dedicatedly for uplift of Assamese language and to make the historic session a successful one. Saharia said that the executive committee of the Sabha is being guided by a panel of advisers comprising three vice chancellors, Dr Mridul Hazarika of Gauhati University, Dr Hitesh Deka of KKHSOU and Dr Dipak Kr Sarmah of Kumar Bhaskar Varma Sanskrit University, who had recently met the former presidents of Asam Sahitya Sabha and has arrived at a decision to hold the centenary session as scheduled.
