Bangabandhu a ‘hero for all Indians’: Modi
Setting the tone for his upcoming visit to Bangladesh, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid homage to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on his birth anniversary describing him as "a champion of human rights and freedom" and "a hero for all Indians".
Taking to his Twitter handle, he said, "My heartfelt homage to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, a champion of human rights and freedom, on his birth anniversary. He is a hero for all Indians too. It will be my honour to visit Bangladesh later this month for the historic #MujibBorsho celebrations."
A Bangla translation of Modi's remarks was also posted on his Twitter account.
Modi is scheduled to undertake a two-day visit to Bangladesh on March 26-27. He will hold talks with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the second day of his visit.
This will be the Indian PM's first foreign visit since the coronavirus pandemic broke out more than a year ago.
