No point providing land to India for Agartala airport extension: Bangladesh opposition

Dhaka, Aug 19 (UNI) Opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Monday said there is no reason for Bangladesh to provide its land to India in Brahmanbaria to expand Agartala airport.
"There have been media reports about it (India’s desire to use Bangladeshi land in Brahmanbaria). We are closely observing the matter," said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
In August, the Indian government has sought 52 acres of land from Bangladesh to expand the runway of Agartala's Maharaja Bir Bikram airport.
