Closure of Indo-B'desh borders due to Covid devastates villagers

New Delhi, July 22: The closure of borders along India and Bangladesh due to the Covid 19 pandemic has led to erosion of incomes for hundreds of villagers living in that region.

The border haats—four at present - two in Tripura and two in Meghalaya - have been shut since March.

Interestingly, besides the economic impact, the border haats also served as an important platform for establishing people to people contact.
