Assam CM to push for development of India-B'desh border

Guwahati, July 27 (TIWN) Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Saturday said he will approach the Central government to develop the India-Bangladesh border at Karimganj in line with the India-Pakistan border at Wagah to attract tourists as well as promote nationalistic sentiment.

The Chief Minister said this while speaking during a discussion on faster socio-economic development of the Barak valley as part of the Speaker's Initiative programme at the Assam Legislative Assembly on Saturday. 

He said Karimganj has historical importance as many martyrs from there had sacrificed their lives for the country during the First War of Independence.   "We are going to send a proposal to the Centre to develop the Indo-Bangladesh border at Karimganj like Wagah border in memory of the sacrifices made by these martyrs," he said.  He said the state government is committed to equal development of the Brahmaputra and Barak valleys, and several steps have been taken to boost brotherhood among the people living in both the valleys.
