Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Monday inaugurated the newly-renovated building of the century-old Dhubri Sadar police station.

The building of the Dhubri Sadar police station has recently been renovated with modern infrastructure under the Mission of Overall Improvement of Thana for Responsive Image (MOITRI) scheme, Sonowal said.

In his inaugural speech, Sonowal expressed hope that the infrastructures of the police stations, being modernised across the state, would strengthen the police-public relation and also ensure people-friendly services.

The chief minister hailed the Assam Police personnel who have lost their lives due to COVID19 infections.

Sonowal conveyed his gratitude to all the doctors, nurses, paramedic staff, safai karmis as well as the law enforcement agencies for their dedicated services to the people during the COVID19 pandemic.

The Dhubri police station was established in 1906.

Sonowal also inaugurated the new building of Golakganj police station in Dhubri district which has also been constructed under the MOITRI scheme.

Later, the Assam chief minister visited the residence of Golakganj MLA Ashwini Roy Sarkar at Agomoni of Dhubri district and expressed condolences at the demise of the MLA’s parents.

Golakganj MLA’s father Kalikant Roy Sarkar (94) died on August 9 while his mother Manomayi Sarkar died on August 11, three days after the demise of her husband.

During his day-long visit to Dhubri, chief minister Sonowal was accompanied by Jorhat MP Tapan Gogoi, social welfare minister Pramila Rani Brahma, additional director general of police, Assam, Harmit Singh, and other officials.
