After listening to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bangladeshi High Commissioner to India Mohammad Imran has said that Bangladesh would also like to be a part of India’s plan of becoming Atmanirbhar (self-reliant).
“I attended the Independence Day celebrations at Red Fort…It was very encouraging listening to Prime Minister Modi. We look forward to having a much better relationship with India. We already have very good relations with India and it can be taken to a higher level,” he said.
He further said that India and Bangladesh can complement each other with regard to becoming ‘atmanirbhar’.
“Be it at the personal level or at the national level, everyone should be atmanirbhar. As India will be ‘Atmanirbhar’, we also want to be a part of it. I think that if we both work together, we both can complement each other,” Imran added.
In Bangladesh, August 15, the Independence Day of India is regarded as a dark day as it was on this day that the founding father of Bangladesh Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, along with his family were killed in 1975.
