Guwahati: Stressing on the need for improving the bus network system across the Northeast, senior BJP leader and the member of the Upper House of Parliament from Assam Kamakhya Prasad Tasa has urged the Centre to introduce 100 modern buses across the Noretheast soon.
“May I propose for 100 modern buses for these States as it would not only develop the economy, it would also bridge the communication gap in these States, which were once together after the independence of India,” Tasa suggested.
Moving a Special Mention in the Rajya Sabha, the front-ranking tea tribe leader of the state said that bus is the primary mode of transportation in the Northeast and it requires proper network between Assam and Nagaland, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh.

“The Ministry of Road Transport may grant permission and the Ministry of DoNER or North East Council (NEC) should provide the buses with due permission from state governments. The bus service is urgent as the railway communication is impossible or it would take long time for laying railway tracks due to difficult in terrains,” the BJP MP said.
