Businessmen have expressed their demand to the authorities as they are experiencing great loss

As many as 700 trucks carrying goods for the Indian market remain stranded on Bangladesh's side of the border at Benapole Land Port, due to lack of space appeared on the Indian side at Petrapole.

When contacted, Joint General Secretary of Benapole Import-Export Association A Latif said: “Every day around 400 good-laden trucks enter Benapole to export products to the other side. But Petrapole authorities are only allowing up to 200 across, citing inadequate space.”

“This has resulted in a long line of trucks in the Benapole port area waiting to be allowed across to deliver the goods in India. The tailback is increasing with each passing day,” he added.

“We have contacted the Petrapole authorities. They assured us that the problem will be resolved within a week,” Neyamul added.
