Military Station Inaugurated in Bengal

President Pranab Mukherjee inaugurated a new military station in Murshidabad district in West Bengal.

The station has great importance because it is the only such station between Siliguri (in north Bengal) and Kolkata which is very near to Bangladesh border.

Mukherjee, who is on a five-day visit to West Bengal, also inaugurated the Kamoda Kinkar Mukhopadhyay Sarani, a street named after his freedom fighter father, at Suri in neighbouring Birbhum district. He also launched the silver jubilee celebrations of Dishari Club.
