Replying to a question, PM Hasina said what Bangladesh achieved from India depends on one’s perception.

 

“Bangladesh is going to get fuel from India. The (fuel) oil will be transported from Assam’s Numaligarh to our depot in the north through a pipeline which will also be built by India. Once the supply of fuel starts, the economic activities of north Bangladesh and the wellbeing of the people living there will get a boost,” the PM said.

 

She added that Bangladesh has also discussed the issue of LNG import with India.
