Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal Sunday called for opening of a second trade route between India and Pakistan through Hussainiwala border.
Pakistan has refused to allow
the transit of Indian goods to Afghanistan through its
territory though Afghan truckers will be permitted to use
Pakistani routes to deliver cargo to the Wagah land border.
The government will soon move a proposal for a 550-km-long road along the India-Nepal border to promote trade between the two countries, Home Minister P Chidambaram said here Saturday.
