More from our Guwahati correspondent:

    Today’s event of Prime Minister Narendra Modi will give a much needed boost for large numbers of people in Assam and Meghalaya in terms of better connectivity . The launch of Mahabahu-Brahmaputra will be marked by the inauguration of the Ro-Pax vessel operations between Neamatighat and Majuli , North and South Guwahati and Dhubri-Hatsingimari .

    It also includes shilanyas for construction of tourist jetties at 4 locations to promote employment and river tourism. The programme is aimed at providing seamless connectivity to the Eastern parts of India and includes various development activities for the people living around River Brahmaputra and River Barak.The Ro-Pax services will help in reducing the travel time by providing connectivity between banks and thus reducing the distance to be travelled by road.

    The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the longest river bridge of the country over the Brahmaputra between Dhubri in Assam and Phulbari in Meghalaya . The 19 kilometer long 4 lane bridge will reduce the distance of 205 kilometer to be travelled by road to 19 kilometer only. Apart from that, the Prime Minister will perform bhumi pujan for the much awaited 8 km long Jorhat – Majuli bridge. This bridge will connect river island Majuli with mainland Assam
