The world heritage site Kaziranga National Park in Assam re-opened for visitors today after the annual monsoon closure. Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal ceremoniously declared Bagori and Kohora Range of the park open for tourists.
Speaking on the occasion, he said the State government has taken numerous steps for beautification, conservation and development of the park.
Referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for making India one of most sought after destinations of the world, he said it is a matter of great pride and prestige that Kaziranga National Park has earned its name in the 17 most iconic centres of the country. Mr. Sonowal informed that a 32- kilometer flyover will be constructed for the protection and preservation of the rich bio-diversity of Kaziranga.
