During the meeting, Sonowal directed all the line departments and the district administration to put everything in place for the smooth conduct of the festival. He pointed out that since lakhs of devotees from across the country and outside will converge on the Neelachal hill, all arrangements, including fool-proof security measures, should be put in place for the convenience of the devotees.

�Assam is known for its hospitality and the age-old tradition of according highest respect to pilgrims and visitors and this year�s Ambubachi Mela will be no exception as the State, keeping up with its tradition on a constant high, will embrace lakhs of devotees during the five-day religious congregation,� said Sonowal.
