Sep 14, 2018

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina will next week jointly inaugurate two key connectivity projects that are expected to strengthen Hasina’s position ahead of parliamentary polls there. 
ET has learnt that the two prime ministers will launch, via video conference, a cross-border oil pipeline and an India-financed railway line that will seek to ease travel to Bangladesh capital Dhaka. 
The oil pipeline will supply 1 MMTPA of high speed diesel per annum to Bangladesh. The diesel is currently transported through a cross-border train from Numaligarh refinery in Assam. The railway line (multitrack project) will connect Joydevpur and Tongi with Dhaka.
