Indian Railway, Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal has said Bangladesh has come a long way and reached a unique height since its independence five decades ago.
Speaking as the chief guest at a reception hosted by the Bangladesh High Commission on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of Independence on Wednesday evening, he said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is leading the wonderful success of Bangladesh.
“When Sheikh Hasina last visited India, I talked to her. Then I realised that Sheikh Hasina thinks deeply about the welfare of the country and the people,” Goyal said.
The Railway Minister said that this time on the centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s birth, the government of India has rightly bestowed on him Gandhi award.

Because, he said, Bangabandhu did not only establish peace and none-communal politics for the people of Bangladesh, he did struggle to establish peace in the sub-continent.
The Indian Minister said that the India-Bangladesh Friendship will remain intact and will become stronger in the years to come. He hoped that after 50 years, the two countries will celebrate the 100 years of Bangladesh’s Independence as developed nations.
High Commissioner of Bangladesh to India Muhammad Imran and his wife Zakia Hasnat Imran welcomed the guests.
The High Commissioner recalled with deep gratitude the contribution of the people of India for their moral and material support during the Liberation War and difficult days.
