GUWAHATI, March 2: Union Home Minister Rajth Singh has advocated coordited efforts to take Barechohoria Bhao to an intertiol stage by astutely utilizing the historic connection that Assam shares with the South East Asia. Underlining the Central Government’s resolve to deepen the ties with the ASEAN, he emphasized that it must not be limited to political dialogue and economic endeavours alone. “Culture is an important component in our bonding with the South East Asian countries and this potential should be tapped to promote Barechohoria Bhao and thereby taking it to a global level,” he said while taking part as the chief guest in the iugural function of the historic Barechohoria Bhao at Jamugurihat in Sonitpur district on Thursday, the Union Minister said this.

Highlighting the contributions of legendary artist Dr. Bhupen Hazarika in popularizing Assamese culture in the world stage, Singh also mentioned about the role Rupkonwar Jyoti Prasad Agarwalla and Bishnu Prasad Rabha played in enriching the Assamese culture. He also recalled the contributions of Sonit Konwar Gajen Baruah in popularizing the Barechahoria Bhao, especially his initiatives to take it beyond the frontiers of Assam. The Union Minister also urged the new generation to strengthen their cultural ethos and take active part in nourishing it further.

Referring to the improved law-and-order situation in Assam, the Union Home Minister lavished high praise on the Sarbanda Sonowal Government for taking timely interventions to neutralize insurgency in the State.
