After the late-night inspection of the Zoo Road Flyover here, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said it will be inaugurated in the “coming week”.

“I went on a late night inspection of the Zoo Road Flyover. We are ready for inauguration in the coming week,” he said in a post on ‘X’, formerly Twitter.

Today, we distributed bicycles worth Rs 161 cr to 3.7 lakh meritorious 9th standard students across public schools, 56 per cent of them are girls,” Sarma said on X.
