Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Dhaka on March 26, 2021, to attend celebrations of the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence and the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“This will be PM Modi’s first visit to a foreign country during the Covid-19 period. He will go to remote parts of the country,” said AK Abdul Momen, Bangladesh foreign minister.
He will also visit Hindu temples in Satkhira and Gopalganj’s Orakandi and pay his respects to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at his tomb in Tungiapara.
“PM Narendra Modi’s visit to Dhaka shows the height of diplomatic maturity and achievement. No unresolved bilateral issues between Bangladesh and India will be discussed during his visit,” said Momen.
On the occasion of the golden jubilee of independence and Bangabandhu’s birth centenary, the Bangladesh government will organise a 10-day program from March 17 to March 26.
Rahman was the first President and later the Prime Minister of Bangladesh. He was assassinated on August 15, 1975.
