NEW DELHI, March 23 - Faced with complaints from Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal over the functioning of the Brahmaputra Board, its chairman Sanjay Kundu promptly assured that the Board will be implementing projects worth Rs 207 crore for protection of Majuli, Sonowal�s home constituency.

Top officials of the Board led by Kundu met the Chief Minister for a meeting at Assam Bhavan here this afternoon.

Conveying the displeasure of his government over the failure of the Brahmaputra Board in undertaking anti-erosion and flood management works, Sonowal directed the Board officials to carry out an aerial survey for making a correct assessment of Majuli on April 9.

Referring to the bleak past record of the Board, the Chief Minister said the people of Assam and particularly those from Majuli are very dissatisfied with the functioning of the Brahmaputra Board. He further urged the Board to ensure quality in their works to dispel its negative image from the minds of people.

Official sources said that taking a strong view of the performance of the Board, the Chief Minister conveyed that due to absence of Board officials in the field, anti-erosion and flood protection works carried out in Majuli were severely affected.

Further, he observed that unless a permanent office of the Board is set up in Majuli, a sense of alienation would always be there in the minds of people. Sonowal asked the Board to set up a permanent complex, which will house an office, a godown and a guest house, so that officials could stay in Majuli and execute their work.
