PM Modi flags off Bandhan Express between India and Bangladesh

Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off a passenger train between India and Bangladesh on 9th November 2017. The fully air-conditioned weekly ‘Bandhan Express’ will run every Thursday between Kolkata and Khulna. “I believe that relations between leaders of neighbouring countries should be like neighbours. We should not be in restrictions of protocols for visits or talks,” Modi said in a video. Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee were also present for the flagging off ceremony, which was done via video conferencing.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee described the launch as a remarkable day for India and Bangladesh. “The relations between the two countries will strengthen in the future,” she said. Immigration and customs facilities were also inaugurated at Kolkata station.
