Prime Minister Narendra Modi has left for a two-day visit to Bangladesh. On Thursday, the PM said that this is his first foreign trip after the Kovid epidemic, in which he will talk about India’s support for Bangladesh’s economic and developmental achievements.
The Prime Minister is scheduled to visit Bangladesh on March 26 at the invitation of Sheikh Hasina to attend the National Day celebrations of the neighboring country. PM Modi will be traveling abroad during the first phase of West Bengal elections. Modi will be in Bangladesh on 26 and 27 March.
There are five Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to be signed between India and Bangladesh during Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Bangladesh. Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen gave this information. Momen said the number of MoUs may be more or less, but at least five MoUs are likely to be signed.
As I leave for Bangladesh tomorrow, I look forward to remembering the life and ideals of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and celebrate 50 years of Bangladesh’s War of Liberation, as well as our diplomatic ties. https://t.co/74FLn4MvHB
Although the External Affairs Minister also admitted that the main purpose of Modi’s visit is to attend various ceremonies, but he will hold detailed discussions on bilateral relations with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. After landing at Dhaka Airport on Friday morning, Modi will directly go to the National Martyr Memorial and pay homage to the 1971 martyrs.
Modi will then attend the ceremony held at the National Parade Square as a special guest. President Abdul Hamid will be the chief guest of the ceremony, while Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will preside. On Friday evening, the Indian Prime Minister will jointly inaugurate the Bangabandhu-Bapu Museum with Sheikh Hasina.
