Hasina phones Mamata, asks about Amphan damage in WB

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday called West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and enquired about the damages caused by Cyclone Amphan.

"The prime minister phoned the West Bengal chief minister around 11:10am and enquired about the damages due to the cyclone in the state," PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said.

He said the PM expressed sympathy to Mamata over the loss of life and property caused by the cyclone and hoped they would overcome the loss very soon.

The West Bengal chief minister thanked the Bangladesh PM for expressing sympathy.

Amphan made landfall in India and Bangladesh on Wednesday evening, causing huge damage to West Bengal and coastlines of Bangladesh.
