Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Monday laid emphasis on strengthening people-to-people contact between Bangladesh and India.
While inaugurating the Bangabandhu Media Centre at the Press Club of India (PCI) in New Delhi, he said the Centre will facilitate efforts to boost ties among people of the two countries, especially journalists.
Minister Hasan said the relationship between Bangladesh and India reached a new height under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her counterpart Narendra Modi.
He, however, said they still have to work to strengthen people-to-people relations, and the Centre will definitely strengthen the ties between the two countries.
The Information Minister depicted the short life sketch of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Father of the Nation of Bangladesh in his speech.
Bangabandhu guided Bangladesh to the path of Liberation and the country would not have been born if Bangabandhu were not born, he mentioned.
He also expressed his special thanks and gratitude for the contribution of India to our independence.
The Minister mentioned the role of journalists and media is very important for enhancing the bilateral relationship of India and Bangladesh.
A documentary on the life of Bangabandhu was screened at the inauguration programme.
Earlier, he inaugurated the “Bangabandhu Media Centre” at the Press Club of India (PCI).
