Agartala Airport to be named after Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishor Manikya Bahadur


Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has said that Agartala Airport will be named after Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishor Manikya Bahadur. Talking to AIR in Agartala, Mr Deb said it is a historic decision taken for the people of Tripura by Central government. He said, Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishor Manikya Bahadur sowed the seeds for development of a modern Tripura.     

The decision came in the wake of the long pending demand of people of Tripura as well as the Tripura Government for paying tribute to Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya Bahadur.

Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya Bahadur, who ascended the throne of the erstwhile Tripura Princely State in 1923, was an enlightened and benevolent ruler. Agartala Airport was constructed in 1942 on the land donated by Maharaja.
