Envoys of Bangladesh, India to visit Tripura

Bangladeshi High Commissioner in New Delhi Tariq A Karim and his Indian counterpart Pankaj Saran are expected to visit Tripura on June 5 to discuss a range of trade-related issues between the two countries, a Tripura minister said yesterday.
Among the issues discussed would be the progress of construction of a bridge over river Feni at Sabroom, a border town in South Tripura district, which would connect with Ramgarh in Bangladesh's Chittagong division, said Industries and Commerce minister Jitendra Chowdhury.
They would also discuss matters regarding opening of border haats in four places of the state, which were already sanctioned by the two neighbouring countries, Chowdhury said.
He said the two diplomats would also review the conditions of the Land Custom Stations (LCS).
Earlier in 1996 the Land Custom Station at Sabroom was shut down, but the central government later ordered its opening for trade, he said.
The Tripura minister said after the visit of the two high commissioners, a high-level delegation of the two countries would arrive in Tripura and discuss issues related to trade.
Chowdhury said the two delegations would also visit Sabroom, where the survey for construction of the bridge across river Feni is in the final stage and review the sites for setting up new LCS and border haats.
Four border haats would be set up at Srinagar in Sabroom, Kashba in Sipahijala district, Kamalpur in Dhalai district and Raghna in North Tripura district.
