Pangsau Pass haats will have positive impact on rural economy: Gov

ITANAGAR, Nov 7: Governor BD Mishra said establishing border haats in Pangsau Pass, in Changlang district, would have a positive impact on the rural economy of the area.
Mishra said this during a meeting with Deputy Speaker Tesam Pongte, MLAs Laisam Simai and Zingnu Namchoom, and Trade & Commerce Director Tokong Pertin, who are members of the core committee which recently visited the land customs station in Moreh, Manipur, to familiarize themselves with the border trade system being followed there. The committee members had called on the governor at the Raj Bhavan here on Wednesday to apprise him of their findings and suggestions.
The governor advised the core group to submit its report to the chief secretary to expedite the process of making the Pangsau Pass border haats functional. He also asked them to prepare a report, “with due vetting by the state government,” and meet the border management special secretary at the home affairs ministry in Delhi “to obtain the necessary sanctions and orders for early operation of the border trade point in Pangsau Pass.”
“All formalities for the Pangsau Pass border haats must be completed early, so that the same can be opened before the commencement of the Pangsau Pass Festival in January 2020,” the governor said. (Raj Bhavan)
