Itagar, Jan 7: The sleepy landlocked township of Tezu has once again buzzed with pilgrimages, tourists and businessmen who have started their footfalls both to take holy dip in the Kund as the Parsuram Mela is all set to begin shortly.
The makeshift structure of around 150 (one hundred fifty) are nearing to completion and to make good earning in the grand Mela is being organised here at the township which is virtually 45 Km distance from Parsuram Kund (a holy dip site).
Like every year the mela would be held on the auspicious occasion of Makar Sankranti.
Shopkeepers from Jammu & Kashmir, Guwahati, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia from Assam and the other adjoining states are thronging the place to sell their goods while the local are having a good time doing marketing during the occasion.
The Bazaar Welfare Committee (BWC) has been facilitating every necessary amenity with the support of district administration to make the Mela successful.
“We are providing security, medical and other mandatory facilities for the comfort of the visitors after proper permission from the administration. Whatever revenue is generated, 40 percent of it would be deposited to the government while the rest would be kept for the welfare activities of the market,” informed BWC General Secretary Chang Tayang.
The Mela which would kick off on January 14 would continue till January 31 next.
