Prime Modi is all set to visit the neighbouring country Bangladesh for two days on March 26, at the invitation of Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina.
The two-day visit to Dhaka is in connection with the commemoration of three highly significant events including Mujib Borsho, the birth anniversary of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The other events are the celebration of 50 years of Bangladesh Liberation and the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two nations.
In order to reflect the strong ties between the two nations, India also conferred Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with a Gandhi Peace Prize. The award was highly appreciated by the Bangladesh government. Modi had last visited Bangladesh in 2015.
He will be the first Prime Minister to visit the Bangabandhu Mausoleum at the birthplace of Sheikh Rahman in the Gopalganj district.
Modi’s visit to Bangladesh will reinforce the existing areas of cooperation and will also introduce the new areas of cooperation. The visit will also be another milestone in the bilateral relations between India and Bangladesh
