A historical monument that speaks volumes of the Ahoms era is on the verge of extinction. Its none other than the Gorokhya Dol in Nazira. The river Dikhow has been posing serious threat to it if the erosion is not checked at an earlier date.
But strange are the ways of the government. The 17th century monument seems to have been a liability of the government. Despite repeated requests, the government has not done even an iota to protect and preserve the historic temple.
The temple premises are collapsing to the river Dikhow. Local residents told Assam Times that they have apprised the authorities of the impending collapse of the temple. But of no avail. The government lacks sincerity which is why, the Gorokhiya temple is going to be wiped out.

Central agencies have been questioning Anup Chetia at an undisclosed location in New Delhi who was brought back from Dhaka on Wednesday.
According to top sources in PMO, only a special court would decide on his fate on Thursday. Home ministry officials have not been able to get any access into these affairs. If the court disallows CBI and IB to detain Chetia further, then the founder ULFA finance secretary would be flown to Guwahati where he has a number of sensational cases pending against him.
A team of Assam police has been preparing to question Chetia as soon as he arrives in the city.
Immediately after landing in New Delhi, Chetia was kept at a guest house in Vasantkunj area but later he was whisked away to an undisclosed location for questioning.
