Goswami proposed the construction of a solar powered, low-voltage electric fence at the construction site. To this proposal, the Forest official said that the fence needed to be verified by specialists of the Forest Department and Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) before being established.

The Forest Minister asked Goswami to keep half of the 200-acre land void of construction to provide room for the movement of the elephants.

A calf was rescued on Wednesday. The calf ran out of an elephant herd and towards the construction site. It was followed by its mother and another male elephant calf which was afterwards rescued from the pit and sent to the wildlife rescue centre at Kaziranga.

Apurba Bhattacharya, a state Congress spokesperson revealed that the area was used by the elephants for giving birth and that the previous Congress administration in the state did not allow the government land to be given to anyone.
