Bangladesh is ready to welcome Modi
Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is ready to receive Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In the meantime, important roads and some installations of the capital have been decorated in colorful style. A gate has been set up to welcome the Prime Minister of India. Banners and festoons with Modi’s picture are strewn on road poles, buildings and walls. Modi’s pictures are also being adorned with flowers in the beautifying sculptures of the road. “Welcome to the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi.”
Heads of state and government, including India, have been invited to celebrate the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence. The governments and heads of state of the four countries have already visited Bangladesh. Top officials in many countries have sent video messages without coronation.
Earlier, foreign leaders took part in the 10-day program from March 18 to 26. The last day (March 26) will be attended by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi. Relations between the two countries are deep due to the allies, neighbors, trade and cultural exchanges of the great liberation war. As a result, the Prime Minister of the country is a little more appreciated. So Bangladesh has made all preparations to welcome him.
Narendra Modi will land at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 10.30 am on Friday. He will be received by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Modi will be given a red carpet reception and a guard of honor.
On this day, the Prime Minister of India will pay homage to the heroic martyrs of the great liberation war at the National Memorial. He will also pay homage to the portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at Dhanmondi-32 and visit the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum. In the afternoon, he will take part in the birth centenary of Bangabandhu and the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence.
On Saturday, March 26, the Prime Minister of India will visit Bangabandhu’s tomb at Tungipara in Gopalganj and Shridham Orakandi Thakurbari, a pilgrimage site for the Matua community of Kashiani Upazila. All sorts of preparations have already been made to welcome him there as well. It is learned that the followers of Matua religion will welcome Narendra Modi in Sridham Orakandi with the sound of ulu and conch and playing drums and brass.
Modi will also visit a Hindu temple in Satkhira on the same day. Besides, during his visit to Bangladesh, he will hold meetings with several political parties including the ruling Awami League and the opposition BNP.
During the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, many agreements are likely to be signed with Bangladesh. Investment, trade and mutual cooperation are among them. It is also learned that India will come to a quick decision on the Teesta treaty. That is what Indian Foreign Secretary Harshvardhan Sringla has hinted.
Speaking at a press conference in Delhi on the occasion of Narendra Modi’s visit to Bangladesh, Sringla said, “This visit of the Prime Minister of India is very important.” The visit will focus on history, heritage, culture and enhancing communication between the citizens of the two countries. Narendra Modi will leave Bangladesh on the night of the 26th.
