At the national and international level, Assam Tourism Department has promoted the Majuli Raas Festival in a great way through comprehensive campaigns.

This year, the Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC) has partnered with Instagram, a popular social media platform to reach out to more visitors in the Majuli Raas Festival from across the world.

Speaking at the inaugural programme, Assam Chief Minister Sonowal said that – “Majuli is a divine place and whoever comes to the river island during the Raas Festival receives blessings from Lord Krishna.”

He also stressed on the need to build a society based on spirituality and moral values and urged the people of the state to lead a life guided by the ideals of Lord Krishna.

Calling the people of Majuli to show an example of generous hospitality to the visiting tourists, Sonowal said that – “Indian culture is based on the motto of ‘atithi debo bhava’."

"Majuli’s natural beauty, legacy, cultural heritage, and history must be preserved and the people of Majuli have an important role to play in this regard," he said.

Sonowal urged them to commit to society and live their lives by the motto ‘work is worship, duty is God’.
