“We have had a good relationship with Bangladesh so far but it will remain so as long as the Hindus there live a secured life. If the brutal killings continue we will start movements in the bordering areas of Benapole and Petropole. We will also stop the Maitree Express,” said BJP State (West Bengal) President Dilip Ghosh said at the rally.

    How would stopping the train benefit the nation? Dialogues between the countries must be held and a joint initiative must be taken to stop the attacks.
