PM returns home

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina returned home on Saturday (Jun 22) night after wrapping up her two-day state visit to India. She went to New Delhi on Friday afternoon at the invitation of her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, local media reported.

A flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines carrying the Prime Minister and her entourage members landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 8.25 p.m.

Earlier, the flight departed Palam Airport in New Delhi at 6.20 p.m. (BD time).

Indian Minister of State for Environment, Forest and Climate Change and also Minister of State for External Affairs Shri Kirtivardhan Singh and Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Md Mustafizur Rahman saw the PM off at the airport.

This was the first bilateral visit by any head of government to India after the BJP-led alliance formed its government for the third consecutive time following the Lok Sabha elections.

 Besides, this visit was Sheikh Hasina's second trip to the Indian capital in less than 15 days, as she was among the dignitaries invited to Modi's swearing-in ceremony on June 9.

During this PM's visit, Dhaka and New Delhi on Saturday signed 10 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) including seven new and three renewed to further consolidate the ever-growing relationship between the two neighbouring countries.
