Port Blair, Aug 21: The Member of Parliament, Shri. Kuldeep Rai Sharma has demanded sailing of an all-port ship for all major Islands of Nicobar District via Hut Bay once, in every 10 days.

In a letter addressed to the Chief Secretary, A&N Administration, the Member of Parliament said that Shipping Services is the lifeline of Andaman & Nicobar Islands, especially for the people of the Southern Group of Islands. As helicopter service offers only a limited number of seats to passengers and in most of the cases the seats remain reserved for urgent official works and patients for general public living in the Southern Group of Islands, ships are the only alternative for travelling from one Island to another.
