Bangladesh’s election ‘internal affair’: India

India today said it considers the coming parliamentary elections in Bangladesh as an “internal affair” of Bangladesh and it was inappropriate to make any comment on that.

“We view the elections in Bangladesh as an internal affair of Bangladesh. I don’t think it is appropriate for the MEA (Ministry of External Affairs) to comment on the internal affairs of a friendly and neighbouring country,” MEA Spokesman Raveesh Kumar said.

He came up with the remarks at his weekly media briefing responding to a query on how India viewed the elections in Bangladesh.
