The project has been one of the dearest, which was tenaciously pursued by the current Executive Committee, CADC. So far great difficulties have been faced here while hosting programmes with no proper structure dedicated for the purpose. It has been the practice to hold programmes in Government schools at the cost of studies of school children.
The inauguration programme was started off with a devotional cultural item praising the lord Buddha. The hon’ble Chief Minister while speaking on the occasion appreciated the current Government of CADC about the kind of works they have been producing. In a remarkable gesture of goodwill and communal harmony and religious tolerance the Hon’ble Chief Minister presented the Chief Executive Member, CADC with two idols of the Lord Buddha.
