The North East part of our Country is only connected to the rest of the Country via a 22 mile narrow corridor which is a security vulnerability we need to address. We need to develop a more effective and safer connection by developing a corridor to the sea – Negotiating with Myanmar and Bangladesh to allow for a 50 Km, or wider corridor from Mizoram to the Bay of Bengal, and undertaking the construction of Highways and Rail links to the Ports to be built there. This would open up the N-E of our Country and connect the region to the rest of the Country via Sea-routes. The corridor has been obtained and work on the development of necessary infrastructure is being undertaken. We should also, negotiate with Bangladesh for an additional corridor, on ground or elevated, to better connect W.Bengal to the N.E.
We should also, negotiate with Myanmar for the return of the Coco islands earlier transferred to them by Prime Minister Nehru without Parliamentary sanction and since leased by Myanmar to China leading to a security risk to India.
