Demand to christen Bogibeel Bridge or Sadiya Dhola Bridge after Sati Sadhani
 

From our Staff Correspondent

Dibrugarh, April 20: The State Government should christen either the Bogibeel Bridge or the Sadiya Dhola Bridge over the Brahmaputra as Sati Sadhani Bridge. Sati Sadhani was the last queen of the Chutiya dynasty, first legendary woman warrior of Asia who played a prominent role in the war against the enemy. April 21 of every year is observed as Sati Sadhani Divas. Demanding this, the Sodou Chutiya Jati Sanmmelan (SCJS) and Dibrugarh district committee of Sodou Chutiya Chatra Santha  (SCCS) , in a jointly organized press meet at Greater Dibrugarh Press Club on Wednesday, called upon the State Government to declare April 21 as a government holiday, which they believed would bestow  honour to the celebrated woman warrior.

Office bearers of both the organizations, while welcoming the State Government’s proposed celebration of Sati Sadhani Divas as a government function and to confer the Sati Sadhani Award to die-hard woman social activist and crusader against witch hunting, Birubala

Rabha, appealed to the government to take initiative for installing  a chair in the name of  Sati Sadhani  at Dibrugarh University,  besides demanding making a  full-length movie  on her life and her sacrifice.

The spokeperson of SCJS, Pranjal Raj Khanikar and Dibrugarh district SCCS, Jitu Saikia and president of the district committee of Chutiya community, Jogesh Khanikar  also appealed to the State Government to include the Chutiya community, the valour and life and bravery of Sati

Sadhani  in the curriculum from primary level to postgraduate classes, and to preserve all the heritage sites and symbols of the great Chutiya dynasty. They cautioned the Sarbananda Sonowal-led BJP government and the Centre that they would not hesitate to intensify their stir if the latter failed to include the Chutiya community in the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution.

“We in no way will compromise on our prime demand of scheduling and for achieving this we will not hesitate to make the supreme sacrifice,” the office bearers of SCCS and SCJS stated.
