Modi, Hasina flag off `Bandhan Express'

India and Bangladesh built on their mutual connectivity initiative as PM Narendra Modi and his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina flagged off yet another train service between the two countries. The `Bandhan Express' will run every Thursday between Kolkata and Khulna. Modi, Hasina and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee attended the inauguration via video link. “We have inaugurated two rail bridges today (over rivers Meghna and Titaash). Built at a cost of about $100 million, the bridges will help strengthen Bangladesh's rail network. Being a trusted partner in Bangladesh's development works is a matter of pride for India,“ Modi said.
