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.
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.
“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.”
