Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first official visit to Bangladesh has turned into a landmark event in the history of the two countries. It has strengthened the economic ties between the two countries, and has also boosted the connectivity and trade.

NewsGram gives a glimpse of the itinerary of PM Modi’s visit through the tweeted images:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was personally received by his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina  when he arrived in Dhaka on Saturday.

 

The Indian Prime Minister began his historic two-day visit to Bangladesh by paying homage to the martyrs of the 1971 War of Liberation in which India had helped.

He also visited the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum dedicated to Bangladesh founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

PM Modi, his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee flagged off the Kolkata-Dhaka-Agartala and Dhaka-Shillong-Guwahati bus services in Dhaka.

Before flagging of the services, the three leaders boarded the buses and greeted the passengers.

 

In a historic moment, the premiers of the two nations finalized a much-delayed land swap agreement to settle a long-running border dispute.

Modi and Hasina exchanged the ratification documents and instruments for the land swap agreement before holding official talks.

 

 

On the second day of his Bangladesh visit Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered prayers at the 12th century Dhakeshwari temple in Dhaka.

He then visited the Ramkrishna Mission nearby and was greeted by the monks at the mission.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched six projects undertaken with grant-in-aid during his visit to the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.

The projects undertaken are: India – Bangladesh Maitri Girls Hostel, Victoria College, Narail; Construction of 3rd floor of Blind Education & Rehabilitation Development Organization, Mirpur, Dhaka; Sewerage System, Sewage treatment plant & waste water treatment plant, Kumudini Hospital, Mirzapur, Tangail; Establishment of Hindi Department, Institute of Modern Languages, University of Dhaka; Recording Studio, Music Department, University of Dhaka; Assistance to Department of Dance, University of Dhaka
