Such instances are not good signs for the indigenous society, Sarma said. Source of funding to set up Miya Museum to be probed.
Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma today said that the police will probe the source of funding for setting up the Miya Museum in Goalpara. Briefing newspersons, Chief Minister Sarma said that the entire matter will come under the ambit of investigation in a few days.
Those associated with setting up the Miya Museum will have to answer the government, failing which legal action would be initiated against them, the Assam Chief Minister added.
Sarma said that he has been continuously saying that emergence of Miya poetry, Miya school are challenging issues of grave concern while he referred to the Miya Museum.
Breaking his silence, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said the museum in question only has traditional items that reflect the culture of Assamese society as a whole and not particularly that of the Miya community.
According to Sarma, except the Miya lungi, every other item kept in the Miya museum, symbolize the rich heritage and culture of the indigenous people of Assam.
Besides, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma feels that such instances are not good signs for the indigenous society. Sarma said, whoever considers themselves to be Indian citizens, must think of setting up a resistance socially, politically against such elements.
Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that it is time for the indigenous Assamese people to think on how to face these kind of threats for making an accurate response.
