New Delhi: New Delhi and Dhaka have agreed to jointly produce a documentary film on the Liberation War of Bangladesh.
“To mark the Golden Jubilee Year of Bangladesh’s independence in 2021, we have agreed to jointly produce a documentary film on the Liberation War of Bangladesh,” Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said during a joint press briefing on Saturday.
Asserting that Bangabandu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was a dear friend of India and a towering leader, Prime Minister Modi said a prominent road in New Delhi has been named after him.
Prime Minister Modi was talking about the Park Street road of New Delhi which will now be named after Bangladesh’s founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The New Delhi Municipal Council approved its renaming a day before Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had arrived on a four-day visit to India.
The two neighboring countries will also jointly produce a film on the life and works of Bangabandhu which will be released on his birth centenary year in 2020.
“We have also agreed to jointly produce a film on the life and works of Bangabandhu which will be released on his birth centenary year in 2020,” Prime Minister Modi said.
Prime Minister Modi along with visiting Prime Minister Hasina released the Hindi translation of Bangbandhu’s ‘Unfinished Memoirs’.
“His life, struggle and contribution to the creation of Bangladesh will continue to inspire future generations,” he said.
