1: Really hope leadership in Center & TRIPURA Govt takes a FUTURISTIC and PROGRESSIVE approach and goes BIG to put TRIPURA into national & international scheme of things and strives hard in making AGARTALA into an world class city signifying uprising India's growing prowess!

We really need to move forward by developing TRIPURA with world class infrastructures and bring it at par with best of the other Indian states in the shortest possible time!

Yes - we do have logistical issues in terms of connectivity,tough terrains - which slowly but surely being overcomed with multiple links opening up through Bangladesh,Myanmar!

Appreciating TRIPURA Govt and Center on the development works so far,would request to set higher goals and aim to make TRIPURA the new face of emerging India!

Some of the very important issues plauging TRIPURA badly:

1.Lack of Big CORPORATES and MNCs (with no. of unemployed youths crossing 5 lakhs!) especially in IT and high tech sector.
2.Lack of Few world class HOSPITALS (e.g Manipal hospital,Appolo Hospitals,AIMS etc)
3.Lack of EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTE of national and international importance (IIM,IIT,IISc,AIMS,Symbiosis mgmnt institutes,Xavier mgmnt institutes etc)
4.Lack of An world class international STADIUM (to host international cricket,IPL matches,national & international football matches)
5.Lack of Few world class 5 star HOTELS,shopping malls,lifestyle & luxury outlets
6.Lack of Latest technologies,facilities in RAIL STATION and strongly built intra state, intra NE rail network
7.Lack of Initiatives for global INVESTOR meets attracting corporates from across the world (whereas in Karnataka,Gujarat and even Chattisgarh these are almost frequent affairs)
8.Lack of World class infrastructure in Bus,ROAD communication
9.Lack of an International AIRPORT (with an world class terminal and facilities at par with Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi Airports)

Also urgent need of the hour is to complete all the existing infrastructure projects as soon as possible and identification & sanctioning of all other infrastructure projects fulfilling above infrastructure gaps without any further delay!

Anything less than 'WORLD CLASS' would only defeat the very purpose behind infrastructure development of TRIPURA under LOOK-EAST Policy!

IMPOSSIBLE - just means I AM POSSIBLE! If India need to catch up with developed part of the world,the most strategically placed Northeast (especially TRIPURA) need to be made into a developed region in the shortest possible time!

I strongly believe TRIPURA govt (in close co-ordination with Center, other concerned dignitaries & all corporate vissionaries) can certainly achieve this sooner rather than late, which would definitely give its people a better employment opportunities, a better healthcare, a better access to quality education, a quality lifestyle, and last but not the least a confident and connected TRIPURA leading India's charge towards contributing to a more stable and stronger global economy!
