Cant get responsive terminal when I ssh from Windows to Linux using putty.exe

I ssh from Windows to Linux server and execute a few commands. I have ssh keys setup between them and works fine.

The commands get executed on the Linux server however I wish to stay on the Linux terminal that was opened by putty.exe. However, the terminal simply does the job and closes.

Here is the command I run on Windows:

Code:
C:\putty\putty.exe -ssh -i "C:\putty\my_id_rsa_putty.ppk" myuser@10.8.66.126 -m "C:\putty\ssh_commands.txt"

Here is my "C:\putty\ssh_commands.txt"

Code:
cd /app/axmw/sftp; 
sshpass -p mypass sftp myuser@10.9.88.195; cd Moht; get *; quit; exit
/bin/bash

The job is done and the script gets executed fine on the target Linux, however the Linux terminal gets launch but hangs and is unresponsive.

I need it to be interactive with any shell [bash, sh, ksh] which is not the case.

If i append "-t"at the end of this command like below:

Code:
C:\putty\putty.exe -ssh -i "C:\putty\my_id_rsa_putty.ppk" myuser@10.8.66.126 -m "C:\putty\ssh_commands.txt" -t

Then it gives me interactive shell however it takes me inside the sftp terminal prompt and the commands do not get executed.

How can I get my commands executed and end up landing on interactive bash or any shell on the target Linux ?
