A top Indian official recently said India's relationship with Bangladesh remains strong and vibrant, giving a strong message to the country's key opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) over its ‘BoycottIndia’ campaign.

While addressing a press briefing on Thursday, the MEA spokesperson said that both countries have a comprehensive partnership, spanning various sectors, reported ANI.

“I would like to say that India-Bangladesh relations are very strong,” Randhir Jaiswal was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

BNP recently started the 'BoycottIndia' campaign in Bangladesh which prompted a section of people to boycott Indian goods.

 MEA Spokesperson Jaiswal said on Thursday, “We have a very comprehensive partnership that spans across sectors, from economy to trade to investment,development, cooperation, connectivity, and people to people, You name any human endeavour; it is part and parcel of India and Bangladesh.”

“That is how vibrant this partnership is,and it will continue to be so,” he added.

After the trend emerged, PM Sheikh Hasina slammed the political outfit and raised questions about the effectiveness of BNP’s stance when the party leaders’ wives wearing Indian Saris.

"When will BNP leaders burn their wives' Indian saris in front of their party office? Only then will it be proven that they are truly committed to boycotting Indian products," she was quoted as saying by Dhaka Tribune.

“I want to know how many Indian Saris their (BNP leaders) wives own? Why they are not burning their saris? All of you should ask them,” she added.

The Awami League president also raised question about Indian masala products and asked BNP leaders: “We are importing onion, ginger and masala from India. Can they cook food without these Indian products?”
