Prez Retreat in North East

Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has urged President Ram Nath Kovind to set up a Presidential retreat in the north eastern region. Sonowal proposed it when he made the newly elected president at the Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi on Saturday.

He said the region of eight states would be happy to have a Presidential retreat in lines with the Retreat Building at Mashobra in Shimla and the Rashtrapati Nilayam in Hyderabad.

According to an official statement, “A Presidential Retreat in the North-east, besides the existing ones in the North and South will symbolise the unity of the country apart from signifying the unity of our diverse cultures and people of the country."
