The "Border Haats" along the India-Bangladesh frontier must restart soon while maintaining necessary precautions against Covid-19, including social distancing as these markets boost the economy, fortify ties among the people of the two neighbouring states, and also check illegal trades, experts and economists said as they urged the Centre to prioritise.
