Assam Governor to temporarily shift to Koinadhora


GUWAHATI: A prime address in Guwahati for over a decade during Tarun Gogoi’s tenure as Assam chief minister—Koinadhora—will now have a new resident. Reconstruction and repairs works are in full swing at the Koinadhora premises near Khanapara to accommodate Assam Governor Professor Jagdish Mukhi. The governor house is under maintenance and reconstruction, and so, Prof Mukhi will shift to Koinadhora for a few months.

A new look is being given to the iconic Koinadhora with painting and civil jobs. All the interiors are being freshly done at a war footing as the deadline for handover is 15 June.

Congress’s top leader, Tarun Gogoi during his tenure as Assam chief minister stayed for 15 years at Koinadhora. After him, the next chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal chose to stay at the Brahmaputra Guest House at Kharguli Hill, Uzan Bazar from 2016-21. The present Assam chief minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma’s official residence is at Dispur MLA campus.
