Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has sought cooperation in importing electricity from Bhutan using Indian land.

He expected this cooperation in a courtesy meeting with Prannoy Verma, the High Commissioner of India assigned to Bangladesh at Ganabhaban on Thursday.

At the end of the meeting, the Prime Minister’s speech writer. Nazrul Islam said that the Prime Minister has sought help from the Indian side to easily import the expected electricity.

Nazrul Islam mentioned in the briefing that Bangladesh will import electricity from Bhutan. The agreement will be signed in this regard during the visit of King Jigme Khesar Namgyal of Bhutan on March 25.

In the meeting, Sheikh Hasina urged the Indian government to withdraw the anti-dumping measures on the import of jute and jute products from Bangladesh. He also told the High Commissioner that India can modernize the Syedpur Railway Workshop.

The Prime Minister said that the continuous democratic system has made the unprecedented development of Bangladesh possible.

He mentioned that after the brutal assassination of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the decision to win the election and which party would come to power was decided by certain circles. That is why Awami League could not win in 1991 even though it got public support. But, in 1996, certain circles bowed to the will of the masses. In 2008 Awami League broke the vicious circle for the first time.

The meeting discussed the establishment of high power grid lines between Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal.

At this time, the Chief Secretary of the Prime Minister. Tofazzal Hossain Mia was present.
