What the Tripura voter wants

However, the matter is a concern for the Tripura government which is highly vulnerable to earthquakes as it lies in seismic zone V.

The seven northeastern states - Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, and Manipur - are considered by seismologists as the sixth major earthquake-prone belt in the world.

Last year, three such incidents were reported from Sabroom in the southern part of the state, close to Chittagong in Bangladesh.
