Port Blair, Dec. 17: The State President, BJP, Shri R. Mohan has requested the Lt. Governor for construction of exclusive guest house for the inter-island residents at Port Blair.

In his letter to the LG, Mohan said that people from different far flung Islands visit Port Blair in connection with their personal works such as Medical Treatment, Court Cases, Job Interviews or to avail mainland bound vessels etc. These islanders face a lot of problems in finding a suitable accommodation at Port Blair for their short stay at affordable rates. They cannot afford to stay in Private Hotels as it is mainly for tourists and hence charges are exorbitant.

The State President therefore placed his request to direct the concerned authorities to construct a separate guest house or a transit accommodation for the visiting people from Inter Islands.

Mohan said, “We have noticed with appreciation that the inter islands connectivity problems were mostly solved, only because of your intervention to improve the logistics in the sector by developing the newly acquired modern high capacity vessels”.

He thus expected that the LG would initiate necessary action for the benefit of the Inter Island people.
