Bnp welcomes Modi’s Dhaka visit, says, ‘no anti-Indian politics’


BNP yesterday welcomed Indian Prime Minister Norendra Modi’s visit to Bangladesh and said it does not believe in anti-Indian politics.
“The BNP had never carried out anti-Indian politics in the past and will not do in future. It serves only the interest of the country. It cannot be treated as anti-Indian politics, said BNP international affairs secretary Dr Asaduzzaman Ripon while addressing a press conference at party headquarters at Naya Paltan in the city.He said, country’s people as well as the BNP are ready to welcome the Indian Prime Minister. I, on behalf of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia welcome him to Bangladesh.”
Regarding Indo-Bangla relations, the BNP leader mentioned that the Indian government has been saying that they are giving importance to relations with Bangladeshi people not with a particular party.
Asked whether Khaleda has got any appointment to meet the Indian premier who will visit to Bangladesh on June 6-7, he said the detailed programmes of VIP persons are not disclosed and that’s why they cannot say anything about it at this movement.
Replying to a question, Ripon said all over the world the people know that there is no democracy in Bangladesh.
“It is our internal matter and BNP does not expect that Modi will talk about the intenal matter of Bangladesh. But possibly everyone will see the democracy in a neighbouring country flourishes,” he said.
The BNP spokesperson however expects that all the outstanding issues like Teesta water sharing would be resolved during the Modi’s visit. – Staff Reporter
