The mango is not only the king of fruits, but politics, which remains the theater of bitter mockery and heated controversy, cannot escape it either. Perhaps this is the reason why West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sent mangoes to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina gave Banerjee the same gift and to Modi. Sheikh Hasina sent 2,600 kg of mangoes to the two leaders on Sunday.
These mangoes of the Haribhanga variety, originating in the Rampur region, were brought across the border by the Benapole checkpoint. On Sunday afternoon, these trucks from Bangladesh brought these mangoes in 260 crates. Meanwhile, many Bangladeshi officials were present at the border. Anupam Chakna, deputy commissioner of Benapole Customs House, told Bangladeshi media that mangoes are a symbol of harmony between the two countries.
