Guwahati: Amidst controversy, Assam government has decided in principle to adopt the song `O Mur Apunar Dex` as Asom Rajyik Jatiyo Sangeet (anthem).

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has instructed Chief Secretary Jitesh Khosla to place the matter for approval in the next cabinet meeting.

The song `O Mur Apunar Dex` is written by eminent litterateur Lakshminath Bezbaruah and is sung in government functions and educational institutions along with the national anthem.

A controversy arose leading to media criticism over a reply to an RTI query that the song is not the anthem of the Assam government.
