It is the third such initiative between India & Bangladesh after 1995 when Kolkata was connected for the first time and later in 2002 with Agartala. Terming the day as memorable one the minister said that this route was functional before independence and now after 67 years as part of the “Look East Policy” of the Govt of India, this route opens for passenger movement again which will help promote trade & Commerce.
