Aizawl: Mizoram would soon commence operation of transport service with Tripura, state transport minister T.J. Lalnuntluanga informed the assembly on Wednesday.

Replying to a question in the ongoing budget session, the transport minister said that an agreement has been reached with the Tripura government in December last year to launch a bus service between the two northeastern states. 

“The inter-state bus service operation will commence once the COVID-19 situation improves,” he told the state legislature.

He said that transport service would also be launched between Aizawl and with neighbouring Manipur’s Churachandpur town and Tahan in Myanmar.

However, the process and measures of launching bus service could not be expedited due to COVID-19 pandemic, he said.

He said that a reciprocal agreement has been already sent to the Manipur government and its approval is awaited.

As regard launching bus service to Myanmar, the state government is yet to receive approval from the Union Ministry of External Affairs, he added.

Mizoram operates transport service with only Guwahati in Assam via Shillong, according to transport department director R. Lalrammawia. 

However, the service is currently halted due to COVID-19, he said.
