Gogoi cries for world heritage site tag for Majuli

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi stressed coordinated efforts to ensure that Majuli is included in the Unesco's World Heritage Site list. Speaking at a seminar on Majuli's Cultural Landscape - Heritage Value - Future in Guwahati on Saturday, he said that Majuli was the lifeline of Assamese culture and a pride of the state. Its distinct Sankari religion and culture together with its unique geographical location has given Majuli a pride of place not only in the state but also outside. He said that effort must be made to bring the unique riverine island and the seat of Vaishnavite culture to the centre stage by ensuring that it gets Unesco's World Heritage Site tag.
