PM Modi, Sheikh Hasina launch first cross-border energy pipeline

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina on Saturday inaugurated the first cross-border energy pipeline via video-conference. The first cross-border friendship pipeline has been built at an estimated cost of Rs 377 crore, of which the Bangladesh portion of the pipeline built at a cost of approximately Rs285 crore, has been borne by the government of India under grant assistance. Addressing the event, Prime Minister Modi said the inauguration of friendship pipeline has started a new chapter in India-Bangladesh relations. Highlighting that the inaguration was taking place a day after the birth anniversary of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, founding leader of Bangladesh and father of Sheikh Hasina, PM Modi said the joint project is a perfect example of his 'Sonar Bangla' vision.

The foundation stone for the construction of this pipeline was laid by both Prime Ministers in September 2018. Numaligarh Refinery Limited has been supplying petroleum products to Bangladesh since 2015.

This is the second cross-border energy pipeline between India and its neighbours.Enhanced connectivity with Bangladesh will further strengthen people to people linkages between two sides.
