Indian PM Modi inaugurates bridge to connect India, BD


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday inaugurated a bridge connecting India with Bangladesh.

“This connectivity has not only strengthened the friendship between India and Bangladesh but also proves to be a strong link of business too,” Modi said, while opening the bridge via video conferencing.

“The entire region is being developed as a trade corridor between northeast India and Bangladesh,” he added.

The bridge was built on the Feni river, which flows between India’s northeastern border state of Tripura and Bangladesh.
