There’ll be no remote areas in Tripura: Manik SarkarJuly 18th, 2012 - 7:55 pm ICT by IANS
Agartala, July 18 (IANS) The Tripura government will not allow the use of words such as ‘remote’ for any mountainous area in the state since all inaccessible habitats would soon be linked by roads.
“Within the next two to three years, words like ‘distant’ or ‘remote’ will no longer be used to designate locations of far-flung and tribal areas,” Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said Wednesday after inaugurating a bridge in Melaghar in western Tripura.
He said the Left Front government with people’s co-operation had tamed the decades-old militancy by bringing in all-round development in the state, where 60 percent of the area is hilly.
According to the deputy chief engineer of the Tripura Public Works Department Sukamal Bhattacharjee, more than 81 percent habitats in remote and tribal areas with a population of around 500 had been connected by all-weather roads.
“The government has constructed over 2,275 km roads in the past 11 years to connect all inaccessible areas. Efforts are on to connect 620 habitats by all-weather roads in the far-off areas with a population of around 250. The task will be completed in two to three years,” the official said.
