ATDC chairman stresses developing tourism in Tezpur
 

From a Correspondent

Tezpur, March 20: The chairman of Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC), Jayanta Malla Baruah on Monday said that despite having enough potentiality in the tourism sector, Tezpur and its many adjoining areas in Sonitpur district were yet to gain a proper feet in the tourism sector because of improper planning.

MLA of Nalbari LAC, Jayanta Malla Baruah, who is the new chairman of the ATDC, while taking part in a review meeting held at the Tourist Information office here with officials from the tourism department, members from various NGOs and travel writers, stressed how tourism could be popularized among the people, thereby making it a way of livelihood for the unemployed people.

Tezpur, located on the bank of the mighty Brahmaputra,  is popular for its scenic beauty and legendary figures like Kalaguru Bishnu Prashad Rabha, Rupkonwor Jyotiprasad Agarwala and Natasurya Phani Sharma, besides many historically important places like Agnigar

Hill, Chitralekha Park, Owguri Hill, Dalimi Pahar, Da-parbatia Door Frame, Gor-Dowl, Rudra Pod, Mahabhairab Temple and Maithan, which have been a major attraction for both foreign and domestic tourists. But during the last few years, due to the indifferent attitude of the agencies concerned, including the district administration and the environment society that is solely responsible for looking after the beauty of the historic city, it is fast losing its name and fame.

Expressing strong resentment over the lackadaisical attitude of the department concerned in taking forward Tezpur in the tourism sector, tourism entrepreneur  Dr. Niranjan Das said before the ATDC chairman that the historically important places in and around  Tezpur town were in a deplorable condition due to lack of the preservation. “Due to the security problem, some anti-social forces conduct certain unwanted acts in these places for which visitors avoid visiting these places,” Dr. Das said, urging the government to take necessary steps in this regard.

Travel writer Dip Kumar Kalita said that without creating awareness, the tourism sector in Tezpur could not be developed properly. “For making our young generation fit for the line, proper training through tourism institute has become the need of the hour,” he said.

Attending the meeting, Assistant Tourist Information Officer of Bhalukpung said that Bhalukpung  had not received much focus despite its unmatched potentiality in tourism.
