Mizoram decides to transport oil, gas via Manipur route

By Correspondent

AIZAWL, Oct 30 - With frequent blockades of the national highway linking Mizoram and Assam at Lailapur in Cachar district of the neighbouring State, Mizoram has opted for the Imphal-Aizawl route to ship in POL and LPG.

The distance between Imphal and Aizawl via Churachandpur is about 400 km.

Mizoram�s Civil Supplies Minister K Lalrinliana, who flagged off a fleet of trucks from the Ch Saprawnga Truck Terminal, said that the decision to carry oil and gas from neighbouring Manipur has been taken due to frequent blockades of the national highway on the Assam-Mizoram border.

�The trucks were sent off after the Mizoram and Manipur governments discussed the situation and ensured that the road was free of hindrances,� he said.

In the wake of a fresh border row with neighbouring Assam that led to the blockade of Mizoram�s economic lifeline at Lailapur in Cachar district, Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga said that his State would get supplies from the neighbouring States of Manipur and Tripura as well as Myanmar and Bangladesh if the roadblocks were not cleared.

A week after the fortnight-long Assam-Mizoram border dispute was purportedly resolved, the issue resurfaced on Wednesday as agitators in Assam blocked the National Highway 306, the lifeline of Mizoram, demanding the State withdraw its security personnel from Assam�s territory.
