On the last day of his two-day state visit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a gathering and said that India was proud of the fact that its jawans had fought for the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971.
“When we think of Bangladesh, we feel very proud of the fact that even our jawans have given their blood for this nation,” he said in his speech at the cultural programme at Bangabandhu International Conference Center.
Prime Minister Modi also spoke about the landmark Land Boundary Agreement which was ratified by the two countries.
“If you think Land Boundary Agreement is about land going this side or that side, then think again; it’s a meeting of hearts,” he said.
Asserting that Bangladesh, like India is a youthful nation, he said: “I am sure the development journey of Bangladesh cannot stop now.”
“My two-day visit to Bangladesh is coming to an end today. But I feel that in reality my journey has just started,” the PM added.
