India is willing to help Bangladesh build infrastructure for kitchen markets at grassroot levels, including at upazilas and municipalities in the country.

High Commissioner of India to Bangladesh Vikram Kumar Doraiswami told this to LGRD and Cooperatives Minister Tazul Islam during a courtesy meeting at the latter’s office in Dhaka on Monday.

Emerging from the meeting LGRD minister said, “India wants to build the infrastructure of kitchen markets and help us in sales of essential commodities. As a neighboring country, they want to participate in our development work.”

The minister said he will consider it if the authorities concerned come up with proposals in this regard.

“We can apply Indian experience and expertise if it is useful and helpful,” he said.

Tazul Islam said the Indian diplomat lauded the just concluded election at the Narayanganj City Corporation, which was absolutely free, fair and neutral.

He said it also proved the election can be free and fair through the electronic voting machine (EVM) system.

It also proved the popularity of the ruling Awami League, Islam said.

LGRD minister noted that the foreign diplomats stationed in Dhaka shared that the election held in Narayanganj was credible and voting in the EVM can be free and fair.

“The international partners and media have closely observed the Narayanganj City Election,” he said adding that, “there is no scope to rig any election held in EVM.”
