Tripura govt wants to establish new road link with Bangladesh

Tripura govt wants to establish new road link with Bangladesh

Agartala, Nov 13 (UNI) Tripura government mulls an idea to established road link with

Bangladesh via Simna in northern fringe of Agartala to boost trade, commerce and

people to people relationship.

Tripura has seven formal road connectivity including two integrated check posts

with Bangladesh by which more than a thousand of people travel everyday.

While addressing a gathering on Bramhakunda annual funfair at bordering village

Simna, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Tuesday stated that he would undertake

a discussion with the central government to set up road link with Bangladesh, which

will boost tourism in both the parts.

The state government has been working on most ambitious project to develop tea

tourism in and around Simna blending with eco sustainable tourist facilities that will

not only attract Indians also Bangladeshi nationals. The villagers of Bangladesh living

10 km distance from formal roads connecting Tripura despite having immense interest

cannot travel to India because of communication bottleneck.

“In this backdrop, a 500 meter road stretch and a culvert are enough to establish

connectivity between Indian village Simna and it’s Bangladesh counterpart. There

are many more such scopes we have but need to explore with positive mindset that

will help socio-economic development of both sides of the border,” Deb said.

“I shall personally talk to the concern minister at centre and try to convince them to

get it done, as both India and Bangladesh governments have been working hard to

strengthen relationship further,” Deb attributed adding that socio-economic, cultural

and linguistic affinity among the people of Bangladesh and Tripura has given immense

opportunity to ride it.

He said the state government has been persuading for setting up of more border

haats including one in northern part of Agartala to boost economy of the people living

in border of both the countries. The border haats will also revive pre-partisan

relationship among the people in the region and Modi led government is also very

positive in this direction.

Unveiling the development plan of Tripura government for the area Chief Minister

said that they have been embarking into the plan for transforming Rajarband that

connects Laxmilunga, Lembucherra and Gandhigram into a tourism circuit under

Swadesh Darshan.

Moreover, government has targeted to make the northern parts of Agartala a hub

of education with world class school, colleges and universities, which might attract

students from Bangladesh and other countries.
