Include state in transit route from NE: Ahmded urges Brahma

Minister of state for cooperation and border areas Siddique Ahmed has urged transport minister Chandan Brahma to include state in transit routes from the north-east to the rest of the country through Bangladesh.

In a letter to state Transport Minister Chandan Brahma, Ahmed urged him to take personal initiative to include Assam in the proposed route so as to cover road, rail and water connectivity to benefit people and ensure better business relationships.

He said road and water connectivity was already functioning between Karimganj and Bangladesh and that a rail route exists between Mohisasan in Karimganj to Bangladesh though presently this rail-route remains unused but could easily be revived.
