Agartala June 12 ,2019 : The state government had decided to accelerate the process of distributing five thousand cows among cattle-rearer people in the state and the department of animal resource development (ARD) has been tasked to ensure this. What the ARD has been asked to do is selected high quality cows that will yield considerable quantity of milk commensurate with the investment made in purchasing them. This was discussed and finalized in a meeting of the state planning board presided over by the chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb.

Apart from this, the chief minister was also apprised of the progress made in converting the Gomati-Meghana stretch of the two rivers into a viable water-way. The secretary of the transport department L.Darlong informed the chief minister that a meeting had been held with the inland water authority of India and certain decisions were arrived at . The proposed water-way will connect Sonamura with Dawoodkandi in Bangladesh but an eighteen km stretch of the river will have to be dredged for smooth passage of water-vehicles. Out of the total stretch of eighteen kms , 3 kms will have to be dredged in Sonamura while the remaining part will have to be dredged inside Bangladesh. The funding for expenses on the dredging will have to be sanctioned by Centre.
