India supported Bangladesh wholeheartedly during 1971 war, says Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina


He was speaking in the presence of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at an event organised by the India Foundation in Delhi.

Abdul Matlub Ahmad, president of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI), who is leading the business delegation from Bangladesh, said that the country was on a sound economic footing with forex reserves of $32 billion. "At least we got something", she said in a lighter note. Hasina also witnessed the signing of pacts worth over Dollars 9 billion by companies from India and Bangladesh aimed at deepening partnership in sectors like power and oil and gas.

On the occasion, Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dhramendra Pradhan said Indo- Bangladesh trade relations have grown in recent years. I will be happy if our relation with this neighboring nation improves.

Advani was also forced to quit after RSS and several leaders within the BJP openly slammed him and demanded his resignation.

However, he said they are open to discussion on sharing the waters of joint rivers.

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.

"We strongly believe our common water resources must act as a uniting force".


The visiting Prime Minister said ties between the neighbours will undergo "another transformation" with a water pact. The Bengal CM's view is that the Teesta waters are needed for the North Bengal.

"I don't know without that shelter what would have been our condition".

Banerjee's position is that the treaty would render north Bengal dry and affect farmers of her state. Sindh was once part of India and I was born there but after Independence we lost that part.

Mamata's opposition to water share appears to be the biggest stumbling block to reaching an agreement on the Teesta River.

She also stayed at the Rashtrapati Bhavan which again broke the tradition of selecting guests for the presidential palace.

Sheikh Hasina told that India and Bangladesh have comprehensively addressed India's security concerns, this has been a factor in trust building and our journey towards peace and prosperity is put to peril by the rise of terrorism and violent extremism.
