      AGARTALA | June 16, 2019:

      To boost trade and tourism in the Northeastern region, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has requested Centre to make new waterways between the state and Bangladesh said an official on Sunday.

      In a NITI Aayog meeting in New Delhi on Sunday, the official said, that Tripura would be a gateway for the Northeastern states if the waterways are created between state and Bangladesh. The proposed waterway project using the Gomati river must be expedited.

      He said that to boost tourism in Tripura, the Union Tourism Ministry might help construct ropeways connecting the historic “Matabari” Tripura Sundari Temple and Chhabimura, the mountain wall on the banks of Gomati famous for its rock sculptures.

      Deb also demanded more financial support from the Centre’s PSUs and autonomous bodies Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund for creation of new infrastructure in the northeast.

      “The public sector companies and undertakings should be allowed to spend at least 10 per cent of their CSR funds in the northeastern states. This will help in early implementation of ‘HIRA’ (Highways, Inland Waterways, Railways and Airways), the grand initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The initiative would not only boost tourism but also many other sectors in the region,” he added.

      The Chief Minister also asked for amending of the existing aviation guidelines to facilitate private operators to increase flight frequency to the Northeast.

      Asserting that Tripura was a flood-prone state, he also demanded an increase in the State Disaster Response Fund from the existing Rs 38 crore at present.
