New Delhi, Mar 12 (PTI): The country will soon have a 'Wagah in the East' along the Bangladesh border where troops of both countries, dressed in full regalia, will perform the retreat -- ceremonial lowering of flags -- similar to the tradition prevalent along the Indo-Pakistan border.
The decision was taken during the five-day joint coordination meeting of border forces of India and Bangladesh here.
"We have taken some new decisions. Something apart the usual beaten track ... We have a joint retreat ceremony at Attari Wagah border where the Pakistani forces and BSF join together in the retreat ceremony lowering the flags.
"We have decided in-principle to have a similar joint retreat ceremony at the Petraploe border (along Bangladesh frontier)," BSF Director General Raman Srivastava told reporters here on the conclusion of the joint border talks with the Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB).
