Two Tripura rivers to be linked with Bangladesh’s Meghna

  • To create three waterways between landlocked Tripura and Bangladesh, two major rivers of the state would be linked with the river Meghna of the neighboring country.
  • The Ministry of Water Transport and Shipping has asked the state government to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) to connect state’s two major rivers- Howrah and Gomati with Meghna, said the state Transport Secretary Samarjit Bhowmik.
  • India will construct the bridge on the river Feni to get access to the Chittagong international sea port in Bangladesh and the neighbouring country has agreed to allow India to use the Chittagong port, about 75 km from Sabroom.
  • Tripura has 856 km long international border with Bangladesh which surrounds the state on three sides.
