Following the anti-CAA protest in Assam, the state also incured heavy loss in terms of beautification which was being carried out ahead of the historic Indo-Japan summit.
"We have so far incurred a loss of approximately Rs 1.16 crores that was spent on preparing for the welcome of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Japanese Premier Shinzō Abe," Naba Konwar, the superintendent of Public Works Department (PWD) informed G Plus.
However, Konwar informed G Plus that the above amount does not take into account the destruction of state-owned machinery and the contractor’s JCB (land excavator) that was set on fire by protestors.
