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.
It is a historic decision taken for the people of Tripura by Central government.
Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishor Manikya Bahadur sowed the seeds for development of a modern Tripura.
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.
