Agartala: A transit route between Northeastern States and the rest of India via Bangladesh, and also border-related issues will be discussed during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Sep 6-7 visit to Dhaka.
Other key concerns likely to be finalised during this trip are setting up of border, erection of border fencing and sharing of waters of rivers, minister said.
Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said that “Over the years, transport bottlenecks were the worst problems faced by the region. But opening of the communication channels through Bangladesh would be able to change those barriers.”
Gogoi also said that there is plenty of scope for development of trade and commerce with Bangladesh.
According to the officials’ reports, SPG team already reached Dhaka and finalised security plans with their SSF counterparts.
