Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is optimistic about his Dhaka visit and counting down the moment of attending the celebration of birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Narendra Modi, who is scheduled to arrive in Dhaka on a two-day visit at 11am on Friday, made several tweets the previous night expressing his keenness to attend birth centenary of Bangabandhu and golden jubilee of Bangladesh independence.“As I leave for Bangladesh tomorrow, I look forward to remembering the life and ideals of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and celebrate 50 years of Bangladesh’s War of Liberation, as well as our diplomatic ties,” he said.
Terming partnership with Bangladesh an important pillar of India’s Neighbourhood First policy, Modi said his government will continue to support Bangladesh's remarkable development journey.
He said “Our partnership with Bangladesh is an important pillar of our Neighbourhood First policy, and we are committed to further deepen and diversify it. We will continue to support Bangladesh's remarkable development journey, under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's dynamic leadership.”
