Maitri Setu's work stalled due to legal tussle

By Our Correspondent

Agartala, Dec. 7,2018: The ongoing construct work of Maitri Setu joining two sides of international border at Sabroom subdivision has got stalled due to legal tussle, according to highly placed sources.

The NHIDCL has taken up construction of the bridge to boost bilateral trade India and Bangladesh. But, the works have got stuck after land owners of Bangladesh knocked the door of a local court seeking compensation.

Sources said, around 2.86 acres of land had been acquired to build an approach road of the bridge on Bangladesh part but no compensation was given to the land owners.

Now, the matter has gone to the court lading to stalemate in construction works of the bridge. However, the court is giving due importance to the case as it involves interest of both sides. It is expected that the grievances of the land owners will be solved very shortly.

Once the legal tussle gets over, NHIDCL will resume work with full force. The bridge, which is proposed to connect Sabroom subdivision with Ramgarh of Bangladesh's Khagracherri up-zilla, is seen strategic as it will open up new scope for the state to access Chittagong Port in Bangladesh.

The construction work of the bridge is scheduled to get completed by March, 2109.
