KAMPUR, March 25 � The dream for a civil subdivision at Kampur has remained unfulfilled although a number of distinguished personalities including Suchen Bhuyan, former advocate general of Assam and father of Ujjal Bhuyan, a judge of Gauhati High Court, Lakheswar Gohain, former Revenue Minister of Assam, late Prabhakar Bhuyan, former Deputy Commissioner of Nalbari district respectively pressed for it.
Suchen Bhuyan who hailed from Kampur left no stone unturned for achieving a civil subdivision at Kampur. After his retirement he used to come to Kampur frequently to organise public opinion for a civil subdivision at Kampur which is a long-cherished demand of the people. Bhuyan also spent a lot of his own money to organise meetings, processions at Kampur area.
Suchen Bhuyan also headed a deputation to meet Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and tried to convince him about the importance of a civil subdivision at Kampur.
Lakheswar Gohain, former Revenue Minister of Assam who was indeed a forerunner in many developmental works of Kampur and is also a contemporary of Suchen Bhuyan, took a strong lead for the fulfilment of a civil subdivision at Kampur.
Late Prabhakar Bhuyan, a retired ACS officer was the Deputy Commissioner and was the president of the Kampur Subdivision Demand Committee. During his presidentship he met a number of officials to expedite the official process in achieving a subdivision at Kampur.
Although the sacrifice of these elderly and wise men for a civil subdivision at Kampur did not bear fruit, their sacrifice would not go in vain, as the present generation would get inspiration in their fight for achieving a civil subdivision at Kampur.
It may be mentioned that the people of Kampur sacrificed a lot in the freedom movement, but they have got nothing from the government till date in respect of social uplift of the region.
