February 25, 2021: Home Minister Amit Shah lays foundation stone of key projects in Assam on Thursday and attended two religious events and addressed public gatherings in Nagaon and Karbi Anglong districts.



Amit Shah visited Nagaon district’s Batadrava Than, the birthplace of social reformer and saint Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardeva, where he launched the work of a state-funded Rs 188-crore project for its beautification.



The project, worth Rs 188 crore, entails the development of Batadrava Than as a centre of art, culture, and spiritualism.



The Home Minister has also joined the puja of Pran Prathishta Mahotsav and the yagna of Maha Mrityunjay Temple at Puranigudam in Nagaon which holds a great value for the people in Assam.



Heavy security was deployed in the Nagaon area ahead of Amit Shah's visit.



Shah visited Assam on February 11 and January 23, and addressed several public rallies. On February 11, with an eye on Assembly polls in Assam and West Bengal, he met influential Koch-Rajbongshi leader ‘Maharaj’ Ananta Rai and spent about an hour at his home in western Assam’s Chirang district.
