Bangladesh minister thanks Indira, Indians; lauds Modi for boost in ties

“Under the leadership of Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina and Indian PM Narendra Modi, our bilateral relationship has reached new heights. This media centre will help strengthen cultural ties and people-to-people contact between the two countries.” said Bangladesh Information and broadcasting minister Hasan Mahmud while he was inaugurating the Bangabandhu Media Centre at the Press Club of India.

He said that without the help of Indira Gandhi, who was the PM during liberation of Bangladesh and without the cooperation of Indian people who accommodated 10 million distressed people, the liberation would not have been possible.
