Hasina sends mangoes to Indian President, PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has sent one tonne of ‘Amrapali’ mangoes to Indian President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a gift.

The mangoes were sent to the residences of the Indian President and PM through diplomatic channel on Friday.

This is the peak season of mango in Bangladesh and the tropical fruit was sent to the heads of state and government of India in continuation of the past practice.

It may be mentioned that PM Hasina had also sent mangoes as a gift to Indian President Ram Nath and PM Modi along with chief ministers of West Bengal, Tripura and Assam last year.

The relationship between Bangladesh and India has reached new heights and the “Mango & Hilsa diplomacy” is making the ties more gratifying.
