Early renovation of Ramraikuti Satra urged

By Correspondent

GAURIPUR, Aug 14 - The condition of the historic Ramraikuti Satra established by Srimanta Sankardev in the 15th century and situated along the Indo-Bangladesh border in Satrasal of Dhubri district has become a matter of great concern to the followers of Sankardev and Madhabdev in particular and the people in general.

The Koch king Naranarayan and his brother Koch general Chilarai had donated 162 bighas of land to the satra. Presently 100 bighas are under illegal occupation. The Satra Management Committee has submitted a proposal of Rs 1.50 crore for the renovation of the satra, but the Government has sanctioned only Rs 34 lakh. Besides, the State Government provides Rs 4395.00 for the satra�s management annually, which is quite insufficient in the present day.

The main gate of the satra has been constructed as per the model of the Patbaushi Satra in Barpeta district, but it remains incomplete due to paucity of funds. The walls of the main Kirtanghar are in a dilapidated condition and the quarters of the bhakats are also incomplete. The boundary walls of the satra need renovation and the walls are in a bad shape. There is no provision of running water. Irregular supply of electricity poses threat to the inmates of the satra as the Bangladesh border is quite adjacent to the satra.

Considering the present position of the historic satra, Jitendra Nath Prodhani, president of the Asam Satra Mahasabha and the satradhikar of Ramraikuti Satra has urged the new Government to take up renovation of the historic satra without further delay.
