He said Indian prime minister himself has assured of it

Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said there is nothing for Bangladesh to be worried over the India’s National Register of Citizens (NRC) issue.

“They (India) repeatedly told (us) that nothing has happened to become anxious over NRC the issue and nothing will happen. Indian prime minister himself has assured it. So, we do not want to embarrass (India) by questioning about this again,” he said.

The minister made the statement while replying to a question from a journalist after a courtesy meeting with Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Riva Ganguly Das at his office in Dhaka on Wednesday, reports BSS.

Quader said: “Our bilateral relation with India is now at an excellent level. There is no dilemma in Bangladesh-India relationship. So, if any problem rises, we could resolve through discussions.”

About the courtesy meeting, he said discussion was held on some projects, including at those in Mainamati of Comilla, Sarail of Brahmanbaria and a bridge over Feni River.

Riva Ganguly has requested to gear up the progress of the projects, he added.
