Earlier in the week, West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party president Dilip Ghosh had demanded stopping of the train in protest against the killing of Hindus in Bangladesh. Ghosh's comments attracted strong rebuke from Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee. "Maitree Express has no relation with terrorism. We should not make such comments which can hamper relations between the two countries," Banerjee had said on Monday. (IANS)
