The Assam Chief Minister also stated that those involved in the establishment of the Miya museum in Goalpara district will be investigated.

According to CM Sarma, the management of the Miya museum will be grilled about the items on display at the museum that actually belong to Assamese culture.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma also stated that if the management of the Miya museum fails to provide satisfactory answers, legal action will be taken against it.

The Assam chief minister also hinted at a possible attempt to take Assamese culture hostage by establishing the Miya museum.

“All of the items on display at the Miya museum are used by the Assamese people.” “The plough items used for catching fish all belong to the Assamese community,” the Assam CM said, implying a possible attempt to take Assamese culture hostage.


Only lungi (a multi-colored men’s skirt typically connected around the lower waist below the navel) is an item on display at the museum that actually belongs to the Miya community, according to Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma.

Sherman Ali Ahmed, a Congress MLA, proposed the museum in 2020. He had asked the state government to set it up at the Srimanta Sankardeva Kalakshetra, a cultural heritage centre in Guwahati.

He had stated that the museum would reflect the culture and heritage of the communities living on Assam’s char-chaporis (sandbars or river islands).
