While drawing attention to the possible Indo-Bangla relation after India’s ongoing Loksabha polls, Gowher Rizvi said “election in India is completely India’s internal matter. Ties of Bangladesh and India will remain warm after the polls no matter BJP and Congress comes to power.”

“Our relation actually based on the ties between the people and governments of the two countries. New government of India would certainly come to power with people’s mandate,” he said.

Director of FBCCI Priti Chakraborti presided over the function while Umme Fatema Nazma Begum, MP and Deputy Commissioner Hayat-Ud-Dowla Khan attended the function as special guests.

A total of 65 students from ten high schools got stipend and five underprivileged students of the upazila were given financial assistance at the function.
