Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday commended the progress Bangladesh has made in every sector under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The Indian prime minister’s praise came when Bangladesh’s outgoing High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali made a farewell call on him at his office, reports UNB.

During the 30-minute meeting, Modi conveyed his regard to Sheikh Hasina and his appreciation for inviting him to Bangladesh for the birth centenary celebrations of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman next year.

 “I look forward to attending the ceremony,” Modi told the envoy.

He also thanked the outgoing high commissioner for the contributions he made to promote the India-Bangladesh relations, seen as a golden chapter, during his five-year tenure.

The envoy presented Modi a framed Nakshi Kantha, which represents a traditional Bengali craft.
