Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Dhaka to participate in the celebration of 50th Independence Day of Bangladesh on March 26, 2021, Bangladesh’s Foreign Minister Dr. A.K. Abdul Momen has said. Dr Momen said the occasion will be marked by celebrations on both sides.
“We invited the Indian Prime Minister to visit Bangladesh on March 26 next year. It was accepted. We would love to see Indian PM Modi join our 50th anniversary of independence celebrations. Our victory means India’s victory as well. India will also celebrate our anniversary of independence,” said Dr. Momen interacting with journalists after meeting Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Vikram Doraiswamy.
Mr. Modi was scheduled to visit Dhaka to participate in the Mujib centenary celebrations in March this year but the programme was cancelled by the government of Bangladesh in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Both sides had planned a series of activities for the “Mujib year” that were affected by the global health crisis. However, the plans for the 50th anniversary celebrations remain on track as of now.
