Bus services between India, Bangladesh flagged off

Dhaka: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee on Saturday flagged off the Kolkata-Dhaka-Agartala and Dhaka-Shillong-Guwahati bus services here.

"Connecting lands, binding hearts. PM @narendramodi and PM Sheikh Hasina flag off buses to Guwahati and Agartala," Vikas Swarup, spokesperson of the external affairs ministry spokesman, tweeted.

Prior to flagging of the services, the three leaders boarded the buses and greeted the passengers.

The Kolkata-Dhaka-Agartala service will reduce the travel time between the capitals of India's West Bengal and Tripura states by one-third

Modi reached Bangladesh earlier in the day on a two-day visit. He was received by Hasina at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport here.

Upon his arrival, he visited the National Martyrs' Memorial to pay tribute to the soldiers who died in the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971.

In his second engagement of the day here, Modi visited the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum to pay tribute to the founder of Bangladesh, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

India and Bangladesh will exchange instruments of ratification of the land boundary agreement later in the day.
