Dhaka, Mar 19 (ANI): India’s High Commissioner to Bangladesh, Pinak Ranjan Chakravarty, has said that his country is keen for Bangladesh to grant it transit facilities through the Chittagong sea port.
Chakravarty made his views known after visiting a trade fair in Chittagong on Tuesday. He said trade ties between India and Bangladesh would get a boost one this transit facility was provided.
India is still awaiting a reply from Dhaka on the issue.
The Bangladesh Communications Ministry has expressed its reservations about India’s request for allowing transport of heavy equipment for power plants from Kolkata to Tripura via Bangladesh on grounds of poor road infrastructure. (ANI with inputs)
