300 kgs of mangoes handed over to Tripura CM


Bangladesh Assistant High Commissioner in Agartala Mohammad Jobayed Hosen on Monday handed over 300 kgs of Haribhanga mangoes to Chief Minister of Tripura, Biplab Kumar Deb at his office Monday afternoon.

The Chief Minister cordially thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for sending mangoes.

Prime Minister Hasina Sunday sent 2,600kg mangoes as a gift for her counterpart Narendra Modi and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and others.

Indian President Ram Nath Kovind and other Indian political leaders will also receive the mangoes.

The mangoes were sent through Jashore’s Benapole land port.

Prime Minister Hasina will also send mangoes to Nepal, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.

Mango diplomacy has always been a tradition in South Asia.

Bangladesh has already sent the fruit to the Bhutanese King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Prime Minister Lotay Tshering.

The Bhutanese prime minister, a graduate of Mymensingh Medical College, had tasted Bangladeshi mangoes during his stay in Bangladesh.
