Historic Kalpa beel on the verge of extinction

Kapla beel at Sarukshetri mouza in Barpeta district is the largest beel in Asom. This wetland filled with natural, geographical and historical resources and encompassing a huge area has the potential to be developed as a tourist destination or spot. But unfortunately this opportunity is lost amid a saga of differences between the State Government and the Fishery Department. The apathy and indifference of the authorities have denied the Kalpa beel its place of pride on the tourist map.
