India plans gas pipeline from Ctg to Tripura 
India has taken a initiative for laying a pipeline carrying natural gas from Chittagong to Tripura to address the cooking gas shortage of its North East states.

Indian Minister of Petroleum and Natural gas Dharmendra Pradhan said Monday that his ministry had taken up the issue with the Bangladesh  government, according to a report by .

In his response to the media in which he revealed the intentions of the Indian government, he said, “We are laying a pipeline for transportation of diesel from Siliguri in West Bengal to Parvatipur in Bangladesh. 

There is pipeline for carrying diesel from Numaligarh oil refinery in Assam to Siliguri.

 In exchange, we have given the proposal for a gas pipeline from Chittagong to Tripura. We are pursuing the matter diplomatically and I would also visit Bangladesh soon.”

The pipeline once approved by the Hasina government would be laid adjacent to the railway lines which pass near the Indo-Bangladesh border, the minister added.

Launching the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana in Tripura, Pradhan distributed LPG connections to 20 families who have been categorised as below the poverty line.
