<p><strong>Prime Minister Narendra Modi</strong> described the cooperation between <strong>India and Bangladesh</strong> as an example for the world.&nbsp;</p> <p>He was speaking while jointly unveiling with <strong>Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina</strong>, the e-plaques for the ground-breaking ceremony of two projects, <strong>via video conference.&nbsp;</strong> &nbsp;</p> <p>Mr. Modi said that the two countries are neighbours, geographically and family, emotionally. Mr Modi said the proposed pipeline will further energize, not just Bangladesh&rsquo;s economy, but also the relationship between the two countries.&nbsp;</p> <p>He expressed confidence that the proposed railway project will contribute to the process of strengthening national and urban transport in Bangladesh. The projects include <strong>India-Bangladesh Friendship Pipeline</strong>&nbsp; and <strong>Dhaka-Tongi-Joydebpur Railway Project.</strong></p> <p><strong>External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj,</strong> and Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Dharmendra Pradhan were also present.&nbsp;</p> <p>Both countries had entered into an agreement for the pipeline construction in April this year during <strong>Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale's visit to Dhaka.&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>The 130-kilometre pipeline will connect <strong>Siliguri in West Bengal in India</strong> and <strong>Parbatipur in Dinajpur district of Bangladesh</strong>. The 346 crore rupees project will be completed in 30 months time.&nbsp;</p> <p>The capacity of the pipeline will be one million metric tons per annum. The project will replace the existing practice of sending diesel by rail covering a distance of 510 kilometres.</p>
