Prime Minister Dr Lotay Tshering on Wednesday said he is here in Bangladesh to listen to the story of Bangladesh sitting next to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, an inspiring leader and a mother like figure.
"I’ve come here to listen to the story of Bangladesh, that too seated next to Her Excellency Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, an inspiring leader and a mother-like figure to me," he said.
Exactly 50 years ago, the Bhutanese Prime Minister said a nation was born amid strife and turbulence, and it went on to make a remarkable progress.
While Bangladesh shares its story of success with the world, Bhutan as the first country to recognise its independence, joins the celebration.
Besides the Golden Jubilee of its Independence, Bangladesh also marks the birth centenary of the person behind it -- Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Conveying warm greetings and prayers of the King and the people of Bhutan, Prime Minister Dr Lotay Tshering, during the event held at National Parade Ground in Dhaka, said it was always a delight to return to Bangladesh, but the reason this time was even more compelling.
