In an effort to establish good relations with the neighbouring state, Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga on Monday flagged off the first Mizoram State Transport Inter-State bus service from Aizawl to Behliangchhip in Tripura.
Speaking on the occasion, CM Zoramthanga said his government will make more efforts to improve road connectivity with neighbouring states.
The proposed bus service would be operated between Mizoram’s capital Aizawl and Behliangchhip town in Kanchanpur sub-division of North Tripura district, state transport department director R Lalrammawia said.
It would be available from Aizawl every Monday and Thursday, and every Tuesday and Friday from Behlianchhip.
The government has taken several steps to establish a healthy relationship with its neighbouring states and countries, the chief minister said.
Efforts are also underway to launch transport services between Aizawl and Churachanpur in Manipur and Tahan in Myanmar, officials added. It is to be mentioned that Mizoram previously operated inter-state transport services with only Assam.
Meanwhile, the Mizo communities in Tripura have welcomed the Mizoram government’s move as the proposed inter-state bus service will also facilitate trade and commerce within the two states.
Tripura based Mizo Convention general secretary Dr Zairemthiama Pachuau said that the proposed inter-state bus service between Mizoram and Tripura would not only strengthen cultural ties and brotherhood among the Mizo communities of the two states but also establish good relations between the two neighbouring states.
“The Mizo communities strongly welcome the move. The inter-state bus service will strengthen brotherhood among the Mizo communities as well as better relationship between the people of the two neighbouring states,” Pachuau said.
