Assam CM Initiates Ferry Service Across Brahmaputra River To Promote Tourism

At a programme held at Kolilamukh in Jorhat district, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal recently flagged off a ferry service between Kokilamukh and Kartik Chapori across the Brahmaputra River. 

This project hopes to boost tourism in Molai Chapori

According to the state government, the ferry service will be operated under the supervision of the Inland Water Transport Department of Assam. The state government further stated, “The ferry service between Kokilamukh and Kartik Chapro will touch Molai Chapori and facilitate transportation.”

Jadav Payeng, an environmental activist had turned Molai Chapori into a forest and a popular tourist destination.



Sonowal said that the ferry service was a long pending demand of the people of Kokilamukh and Kartik Chapori. With the inauguration, this demand has been met.

Sonowal added, “In the absence of a regular ferry service, there was no transportation network between the people living on both the banks of the river. Therefore a regular ferry service here would ensure smooth connectivity between both the banks. The ferry service would serve as a boost to the tourism potential of Molai Chapori.”

The Chief Minister also thanked Jadav Payeng for promoting Molai Chapori and transforming the barren land into a forest.
