India's Oxygen Express arrives in Bangladesh
Prothom Alo English Desk
Published: 25 Jul 2021, 01:48

Indian railways' Oxygen Express entered Bangladesh with 200 MT of liquid medical oxygen on Saturday night as the country's Covid-19 daily-death toll remained close to 200, reports UNB.
Set out from Jamshedpur-Tatanagar in India's Jharkhand state at 10:00am, the train reached Bangladesh through Benapole around 10:00pm on Saturday, sources at Bangladesh Railway told UNB.


The train is carrying 10 containers of liquid oxygen and those will be unloaded after it reaches the west side of Bangabandhu railway bridge on Sunday.

Indian railways' Oxygen Express has embarked on its first overseas journey to transport 200 MT of liquid medical oxygen to Bangladesh as the Covid-19 situation keeps worsening in the country with increased hospitalization.

This is the first time ever that the Oxygen Express has been put into operation to deliver the life-saving gas to foreign soil since these special train services began in India in April this year.
So far, the state-owned Indian Railways has operated 480 such special oxygen trains across India.

On Saturday, an indent was placed at Tata in Chakradharpur division under South Eastern Railway to ferry the 200 MT of oxygen to the Benapole border, according to the Press Information Bureau of India.

This consignment will significantly augment the necessary reserves of liquid medical oxygen in Bangladesh, it said.

Still India did not have to sell BD the oxygen and so much appreciated.

Also I heard that India is supplying hundreds of ventilators to BD on an emergency basis, although Walton had a working design ready last year licensed from the US and somehow the time has not been spent already making at least many hundreds of them to hold in reserve. :hitwall:

That is the problem with you lot. Sending 200 mt oxyzen ur supa pawa media and enen FM Twitting about it as help!...is it free lol?

Your shit country imported billions from china few months ago and still is did Chinese fm tweet and there media post it on daily basis? No they didnt.

That's why india will remain a third world 2k per capita income. Talk too much do very little. And try to show off ha ha every small thing as a huge contribution.
If the Chinese FM did that then he'd be hounded by Chinese netizens on a daily basis and you know the reason.

That said, I still think that this is a gesture of good will from the Indian side. Every little bit helps in the battle against COVID and the fact that they are willing to spare some for Bangladesh when they too have a shortage is magnanimous.

You can always refuse the oxygen. Its not being shoved down your throat. You can import from china, Myanmar and Pakistan .
They will import from china too. Except china remains quite about every small help they provide. Oxyzen generation machines imported from China by bd steel industry to increase medical oxyzen is in process of setting up.

If they think they can counter Chinese influence with a measly 10 containers of oxygen, the more power to them. A steel plant in Tangshan probably uses up this much in less than a day. :yahoo:

Last time your ambassador showed this much arrogance he had to publicly apologize. If you think you can influence the bdians by buying them up , you are mistaken. The present government is pro democracy and India while the common man is not stupid. The servile trolls here are just serving their masters.
