Bangladesh land swap deal bill gets nod from Cabinet 6.5.2015 Asian Age: India

The Union Cabinet on Tuesday cleared the constitutional amendment bill to operationalise the Land Boundary Agreement with Bangladesh.

This covers areas of Assam, West Bengal, Tripura and Meghalaya to be swapped with Bangladesh in exchange for other territories held by that country.

The bill is likely to come up Wednesday in the Rajya Sabha, where an earlier bill is pending since 2013. This comes as the government took several parties into confidence, sources said. The bill must be ratified by at least 50 per cent of state legislatures before it can come into effect.

The Cabinet decision was a day after the BJP-RSS leadership discussed the bill with Assam leaders and decided to include territories pertaining to the state.

Unrest is brewing among Assam’s tea tribes, whose forefathers were brought here by British planters from neighbouring Bihar and Orissa more than a century ago, as changing weather patterns upset the economics of the industry. Scientists say climate change is to blame for uneven rainfall that is cutting yields and lifting costs for tea firms such as McLeod Russel, Tata Global Beverages and Jay Shree Tea. While rainfall has declined and become concentrated, temperatures have risen — ideal conditions for pests like looper ...
