Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina prays for peace, stronger ties at Ajmer dargah

  • President Pranab Mukherjee said the Indian economy will be among the top five in terms of absolute value and several glorious chapters will be added to the country’s PSUs in the future

Highlighting the significant role of business leaders, Subhrakant Panda, senior committee member of FICCI and managing director of Indian Metals & Ferro Alloys Ltd, said that India and Bangladesh needed to take bilateral relations to the next level. Ms Hasina said once the water sharing is resolved, India-Bangladesh relations will undergo further transformation.

The Bangladesh PM said her country is importing electricity from India and also collaborating in other sectors of energy such as solar, wind and hydro projects, and offshore exploration.

A visibly emotional Hasina told a gathering of people at an event organised by India Foundation that she and her sister were rendered "homeless, countryless" and became refugees, and that it was India's former PM Indira Gandhi, who came to their rescue.

The two sides also agreed on close cooperation between their armed forces, according to the speech released by the Indian government.

"Comprehensive, basin wise solution to water sharing of all common rivers holds key to our common future".

"We strongly believe our common water resources must act as a uniting force". Dr. Singh and Ms. Hasina expended significant political capital to transform ties, particularly on cooperation on terrorism, and the frameworks for the land swap and water-sharing arrangements. This is Sheikh Hasina's third state visit to India. Had a talk with Didi, she put forward something new. "But Modiji has given the assurance that he is there to see what happens", she said.

Hasina said she does not know how Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee would react to her submission about the pact.

Hasina, who arrived in India Friday on a four-day state visit, will wrap up her tour Tuesday.

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia claimed on Sunday that the government had agreed to "sell off the country" in exchange for another five years in power.

A pact between India's Adani Power (Jharkhand) and the PDB with an investment of $2 billion, and a power purchase agreement between Adani Power and Bangladesh's Power Grid Company were also signed.
