Kolkata: Washing away all speculations, it is heard as West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s delegation to Bangladesh on June 6. Modi will embark on a two-day visit to Bangladesh with an aim to inject New momentum in the bilateral relationship by enhancing cooperation in connectivity, economic and other areas. Notably, Mamata did not accompany Manmohan Singh on his visit to Bangladesh. Hence her visit to Dhaka along with the PM is sure to relay the political chemistry between the centre and the state.
During the visit, part of his policy to deepen engagement with India’s immediate neighbourhood, Modi will hold wide-ranging talks with his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina on the whole gamut of ties and ways to move forward further.
Modi had earlier visited Nepal and Bhutan.Ties between India and Bangladesh are on an upswing ever since Hasina government came to power in January, 2009.Modi will be visiting at the invitation of Hasina who had extended the gesture through telephonic talk and writing a letter soon after Modi had led Bharatiya Janata Party to a landslide win in Lok Sabha elections in May 2014.
