GUWAHATI, Feb 9 � The nascent Geeta Mandir Bachao Samiti (GMBS) has demanded immediate revocation of the decision of the Geeta Mandir Trust to handover a �part� of the Geeta Mandir land to make room for the Geeta Nagar Police Station. The Samiti pleads for immediate interference of the Chief Minister in the matter.

The Samiti has alleged that the �part� of the Geeta Mandir land is in fact a part of the forest area of the enviously verdant Geeta Mandir hillock. It alleges that the general secretary of the Geeta Mandir Trust has described this part of the hillock as a part of the Geeta Mandir area only to deceive the people and the administration for his personal gain.

The Samiti claims that in case the Police Station is shifted to this part of the hillock, it would spoil the entire natural as well as the social environment of the area and will affect the sanctity of the Geeta Mandir. It reminds that the Geeta Mandir was set up in the 1970s at the initiative of former Chief Minister Mahendra Mohan Choudhury with the noble aim of imbibing good social and ethical values among the people, particularly among the members of the young generations of the people.

The part of the hillock land sought to be transferred to the Police Station has a beautiful green cover, with valuable plants. This is providing the entire Geeta Nagar area a great relief during the summer season by keeping the soaring temperature under control.

The Samiti demands that the entire Geeta Mandir hillock should be declared as a protected area for the greater interest of the Guwahatians. The entire hillock should be developed into a botanical garden and the dilapidated Geeta Mandir Library should be developed into a modern library and learning centre to help the people acquire proper knowledge about Hinduism from the Hindu scriptures, said Samiti general secretary Dwijen Bhattacharyya.

This will also help developing the hillock as a much sought after tourist destination, Bhattacharyya said.
