Former Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith has prayed for speedy recovery of Pranab Mukherjee, the former President of India.

“I have been alarmed to receive the news of your illness and surgery. I pray for your quick recovery and better health while closely following your health updates,” he said in a message written to Pranab Mukherjee on Wednesday. Mukherjee has been a seasoned politician of the sub-continent, he said.

“As far as Bangladesh is concerned, you have a special place in our people’s hearts. The people of Bangladesh will always remain indebted to you for your meaningful contributions to deepening the historic ties of friendship between Bangladesh and India,” Muhith added.
