After the disengagement along the Pangong Tso region, India is strategizing to counter China threat in the North East. The Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport Project KMMTTP is India’s new gateway to south-east Asia. The project with a budget of over 20,000 crores will provide an alternate trade and military route to North-Eastern states through Myanmar.
While the protests are disrupting the internal peace of Myanmar, we bring you the first ground report on Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport Project (KMMTTP) which is a revolutionary project by India to connect India with South East Asian countries by providing a shorter route via Myanmar-Thailand and further towards East.
