Bangladesh PM invites Assam to benefit from Bangladesh's growth trajectory

South Asia Monitor/IBNS | @indiablooms | 15 May 2021, 10:42 pm

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has invited the bordering northeast Indian state of Assam to derive benefits from Bangladesh's growth trajectory, given the warmth, depth and diversity of Bangladesh-India relationship.

Sheikh Hasina congratulated Himanta Biswa Sarma, the new Chief Minister of Assam, and wished him success in leading his pluralistic state, tweeted the Bangladesh Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Daily Star reported.

Sarma succeeded Sarbananda Sonowal as the 15th Chief Minister of Assam.

The BJP won a second straight term in the recently concluded assembly polls in the state.

Sarma, who switched to BJP from the Congress six years ago, is credited to have brought the northeast states within the party's grasp.
