PM Modi, Sheikh Hasina Likely To Discuss Teesta Water Sharing, Rohingya

PM Narendra Modi speaking at the convocation of Visva Bharati University in West Bengal

"A golden chapter is being written in the relationship of India and Bangladesh".

In a major security breach, an unidentified man broke through the security cordon post the convocation ceremony at Visva Bharati. This will be followed by a meeting between the two prime ministers. She said her country had allowed the refugees to enter on humanitarian grounds, but wants to repatriate them as soon as possible. They are the one who can take care of the future generation of the nation as well as the development of the country.

"Rabindranath used to visit those places to oversee his zamindari, however, he was more concerned with the welfare of his poor subjects and he was always with them in their happiness and sorrows", the prime minister said.

"Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is present with us". Be it road, railways, worldwide waterways or coastal shipping, the two countries were rapidly moving forward in the area of connectivity, he said after inaugurating Bangladesh Bhavan on the Visva Bharati University campus along with Hasina. Modi's Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee were among the attendees apart from the University vice-chancellor, teachers, and students.

Following the visit to West Bengal, Prime Minister Modi will be visiting Jharkhand's Sindri on May 25 to lay the foundation stone of various projects of the Indian government and the state government.

"One such example is Bangladesh Bhavan", PM Modi said here.

" During my travels overseas I found people everywhere treat Rabindranath Tagore with so much respect".

"I admire Hasina-di most and she loves me".

Almost 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled into Bangladesh from Myanmar since August to escape a military crackdown, launched in response to Rohingya insurgent attacks. The aim of the Bangladesh Bhavan is to contribute in the field of language, culture, art, economy, history with emphasis on cultural exchange between the two countries.

" Today's challenge is different". Align your dreams with this country's needs.

Modi, immediately after beginning his speech, sought an apology for the unwarranted crises.

The convocation missed out on an important tradition as the PM did not award "Desikottam", the university's highest accolade.

After the programme, the Prime Minister will return to Kolkata. "I was invited by the university and it's an honour for me to witness this historic event", Ms Banerjee said. But I do not think there will be a discussion on Teesta water accord.
