Tripura governor Ramesh Bais

Tripura governor Ramesh Bais on Sunday said that bilateral relation with neighbouring Bangladesh is cordial and governments endeavour is to develop connectivity through the neighbouring country.

Bais said this while unfurling the national flag at the Assam Rifles ground here on Sunday as part of 71st Republic Day celebration.

He said would help the state as well as the entire Northeast to prosper in the long run.

Bais said many projects of connectivity through Bangladesh such as the 15-km long Agartala-Akhaura rail line and a new waterway through the river Gomati in Sipahijala district would boost connectivity and trade between the two countries.

He said that access to Chittagong port would open a new vista of connectivity between India’s Northeast and Bangladesh.

The Chittagong port is just 57-km from Tripura’s southern-most border town of Sabroom.

The governor said Tripura was following the HIRA (highways, internet, roadways and airways) for development and added the state has achieved success considerably in organic farming.

He said 9,000 farmers were given government assistance to encourage organic farming.
