Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banarjee has termed Bangladesh and India's relationship as "steady as the Padma, Meghna and Jamuna."

"India-Bangladesh's relationship is steady and continuous, just like the flow of the waters of Padma-Meghna-Jamuna," said Mamata. "This relationship will continue further."

Mamata made the remarks while addressing the inaugural program, held at Visva-Bharati University in Shantiniketan in Birbhum district of West Bengal on Friday, of Bangladesh government-funded Bangladesh Bhaban (Bangladesh Building), reports Bangla Tribune.

"This bhaban will become a place for pilgrimage one day," said the chief minister. "Visva-Bharati is working to strengthen the relationship between the two countries."

She also said that in the future, her state government plans to build a Bangabandhu building as well. 

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi were also present during the inaugural program. Previously, both of them attended the convocation of Visva-Bharati on Friday morning. 

Hasina and Modi will be attending a bilateral meeting after the inaugural program.

The Bangladesh Bhaban, funded by the Bangladeshi government, will include modern cinema theaters, exhibition centres, and libraries. The libraries will have works of literature, culture, history, history of Bangladesh's liberation war and India's journey to independence. 

Murals of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Rabindranath Tagore have been placed on the walls beside the entrance of Bangladesh Bhaban.
