Assam had as many as five National Parks namely — Kaziranga, Orang, Manas, Nameri and Dibru-Saikhowa.

Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has announced the up-gradation of Raimona Sanctuary to National Park on June 5.

“The inclusion of another two national parks will boost tourism and will go a long way to preserve eco-diversity,” said Mr Suklabaidya.

It may be mentioned here that the government was criticized for allegedly trying to sell Dehing-Patkai to open it for coal mining in the reserve forest land.

The decision evoked nationwide outrage and the deal stayed.
