GUWAHATI, Nov 22: State chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has announced a sum of Rs 1.5 lakh to be given to Bihu committees for organizing the Bihu festival. This financial support is part of the government’s initiatives to promote and facilitate cultural events in the state.

Taking to the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), chief minister Sarma stated, “As part of our government’s initiatives, the Government of Assam is now providing Rs 1.5 lakhs to Bihu committee for organizing the Bihu festival.
