Dr Manik Saha writes Piyush Goyel urging to transport food grains through Bangladesh; also urged Scindia to increase the number of flights

The train communication of Tripura with rest of the country is stopped for more than a month due to heavy rain and landslides.

Vehicular movements were also stopped due to a landslide on Thursday due to a massive landslide on NH6 at Lumshong in Meghalaya triggered by incessant rain.

The Transport Secretary L H Darlong said that now Tripura has to rely on passage through Bangladesh and air connectivity for the movement of goods and passengers.

Darlong also said that Chief Minister Manik Saha urged the Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia to increase the number of flights in the Agartala-Kolkata, Agartala-Guwahati, Delhi-Agartala and Agartala-Dhaka routes by writing a letter on Thursday.

CM Saha also requested the union minister to issue a price cap on the routes so that airline operators do not charge extra prices for their services.

Darlong informed to reporters that the state government has requested Bangladesh and relevant transport organisations to increase the number of buses in the Agartala-Dhaka and Agartala-Dhaka-Kolkata route.

Tripura government has also asked Assistant High Commissioner of Bangladesh’s office at Agartala to expedite the Visa issuing process as two pairs of additional buses are about to commence operations between Agartala-Kolkata route.
