Assam’s Golpara district administration on Tuesday sealed the newly inaugurated Miya museum after Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the police will probe the source of funding.
The private Museum was inaugurated on 23 October at Dapkarbhita in the Lakhipur area of Goalpara district.
The notification states ” As per the Direction of DC Goaplara this PMAY-G house of Mohar Ali, S/O- Somesh Ali of Village Dapkarbhita is hereby sealed until further order.”
Sarma said that he has been continuously saying that the emergence of Miya poetry, and Miya school are challenging issues of grave concern, North East Live TV reported.
Those associated with setting up the “Miya Museum” will have to answer the government, failing which legal action would be initiated against them, Sarma added.
The BJP leaders in Assam have demanded to immediately shut down the museum.
