GUWAHATI, June 27: Prajanmya Unmesh, a prominent socio-cultural organisation in Assam, has expressed strong opposition to the current naming of the Sootea constituency. The majority of the population and the area encompassed by the Sootea constituency are located in Jamugurihat. This constituency, numbered 75, is situated on the banks of the Bhoroli River and is centered around Jamugurihat. The people of this locality passionately desire to change the name of the constituency to ‘Jamugurihat’.

Jamugurihat is a renowned Vaishnavite center famous for its Baresahariya Bhaona, which has gained international recognition through performances organised by Prajanmya Unmesh. Prajanmya Unmesh is a well-respected socio-cultural organisation in Assam that promotes traditional culture. Its chief executive, Arup Saikia, has appealed to all residents of greater Jamugurihat, irrespective of their communities, to approach the Election Commission of India and request a change in the constituency’s name. In addition, Hemalata Saikia, an octogenarian social worker and former state president of Sankerdev Nam Dharma Aai Matri Samaj, has written a letter urging the Baresahariya Bhaona committee, the apex organisation of Jamugurihat, to reach a consensus on this matter.

Arup Saikia and other members of Prajanmya Unmesh emphasise the necessity of meeting with the chief minister of the state and the Election Commission of India to advocate for renaming the constituency as Jamugurihat. It is important to note that organisations such as Prajanmya Unmesh and Sankerdev Nam Dharma Aai Matri Samaj are content with the delimitation of the area or changes in the demography; their primary concern lies in renaming the constituency
