Pranab Mukherjee for speedy implementation of Indo-Bangla decisions
NEW DELHI: President Pranab Mukherjee today pitched for “speedy implementation” of the decisions taken by India and Bangaldesh to improve bilateral ties.
Addressing a group of prominent Bangladeshi personalities at the Rashtrapati Bhavan here, Mukherjee also favoured a greater sub-regional cooperation between Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and India especially in improving connectivity and on issue of transit, a Rashtrapati Bhavan spokesperson said in a release here.
Mukherjee said India had the privilege of extending some assistance in the historical struggle of the people of Bangladesh for freedom and India would like to see Bangladesh developed and prosperous.
“There is broad consensus amongst various political parties in India that the two countries must develop and progress together”, he was quoted in the release as saying.
Mukherjee called for expediting the implementation of projects and said people should be able to see things happening on the ground quickly.
Noting that the dialogue process between scholars of the two countries was extremely important, he said such an exercise should identify critical areas where intervention by senior policy-makers was required and bring them to the attention of the respective governments.
