Agartala, May 9: The Left Front government of Tripura on Friday welcomed the recently passed Indo-Bangladesh Land Boundary Agreement in Lok Sabha, saying it would solve two disputed land problems in Tripura-Bangladesh border and benefit other neighbouring state to resolve various other problems including cross border movement.”We welcome this Bill. We had demand on Moharichar and Chandangar. We have produced all papers related to Chandangar and they (Bangladesh) have left Chandagar for us because the families residing there are Indians and used to do cultivation but in case of Muharichar they are raising various questions,” said Badal Chowdhury, Tripura Revenue Minister.Chowdhury suggested that most part of the disputed char land at Muhuripur would go to Bangladesh side and the enclave at Chandangar would come to Indian side but there would not be any eviction. “We shall get the entire land and they will give everything if it is the attitude then the problem shall continue and never be solved. We earnestly wanted that it should be sorted out. In creation of Bangladesh the people of Tripura played an important role and the Bangladesh government also appreciates this, our people also are aware of this,” added Chowdhury.The Lok Sabha passed the Constitution 119th Amendment Bill on the Land Boundary Agreement between India and Bangladesh on Thursday.The Bill was unimously passed by the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday with 180 votes in favour and zero against it.The agreement aims at the acquiring of territories by India and the transfer of territories to Bangladesh through retaining of adverse possession in pursuance of the 1974 agreement between the two tions.
