Shringla: Bangladesh successfully tackled Rohingya humanitarian crisis
Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Harsh Vardhan Shringla has praised Bangladesh for successfully tackling the Rohingya humanitarian crisis. “Bangladesh has successfully tackled the humanitarian crisis [Rohingya crisis]," he said while speaking to reporters at Chittagong port on Thursday. Thanking the Bangladesh government, Shringla said: “India was and will always be beside Bangladesh in the time of the Rohingya crisis.” A ship carrying 700 tons of relief for the Rohingya arrived at the port from India around 5:30am. The Indian high commissioner handed over the relief to Chittagong Deputy Commissioner Zillur Rahman Chowdhury. Additional District Magistrate Mominur Rashid told the Dhaka Tribune: “The relief contains rice, pulses, edible oil, sugar and other food items. India has sent a total of 800 tons of relief so far.” At least 501,800 Rohingya have entered Bangladesh fleeing the violence in Myanmar.
