Earlier, the Assam budget allocated Rs. 9.60 crore for the Garukhuti Project, as per the government statement 2000 Gir cows will be brought to the state, and 500 will be brought by March 2022

Chief Minister on his Twitter handle stated that 77,420-bigha land was freed from encroachment in Garukhuti under Sipajhar Block in Darrang district. 134 Ecological Task Forces deployed for massive afforestation activities.

The Gir cows arrived in Rangiya by train and were transported to Garukhuti by truck, according to reports.

15 youth have been trained for the major project as a result of it. The Gir cows were imported from Bhavnagar, which claims to produce 14-15 litres of milk every day, according to official reports.

Furthermore, the official said that it would solve the state's milk demand, hence resolving the unemployment problem.

A team under MLA of Sootea constituency Padma Hazarika met Gujarat Minister of Agriculture and veterinary Raghavji Patel, Chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma also had a talk with Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendrabhai Patel regarding the project.

A few days back, the Prabajan Virodhi Manch charges Assam Chief Minister of Assam over Gorukhuti project encroachment stating "the facts are completely the opposite, contrary to the Chief Minister's announcement, not 1 bigha of land has been freed of encroachers, excepting the 120 bighas which are a part of the temple complex.

For the consumption of the general public in Assam to show that this Government is pro-indigenous, much publicity has accompanied the so-called agricultural project with the chairman Hazarika seen on a tractor tilling the land."
