GUWAHATI, Dec 9 - �Kamakhya is one of the most important Shakti peeths in the country and it is our solemn duty to keep the temple premises clean. Many devotees seeking Maa Kamakhya�s blessings visit the place from within the country and abroad and a clean environment would present the best impression of the State to the visitors.� Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said this today while inaugurating the project for development of Kamakhya temple complex as a �Swachh Iconic Place�.
