        The Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee said that this new Passenger Train link between Kolkata & Khulna will strengthen the relationship between two countries. She expressed happiness o­n introduction of the new train between the two countries & recollected the traditional bonding with Bangladesh.

     



After the introduction of  ‘Maitree Express’ between Kolkata and Dhaka Cantonment stations in April, 2008, the Governments of India and Bangladesh have further decided to run another passenger train viz. Bandhan Express between Kolkata and Khulna through Petrapole & Benapole route to cater to the demands of the people of both the countries for more connectivity.
