Road, Transport, and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader unveiled the three types of special edition of wristwatches at his secretariat office in the presence of Indian High Commissioner Vikram Doraiswami.

Later, at a press conference, Quader said relations between Bangladesh and India are time-tested.

Dubbing Bangabandhu and Indira Gandhi as the flame of light in the relations between the two neighboring countries, the minister said the ties still remain radiant during the tenures of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

The Awami League general secretary said the two heads of government are working together in common socioeconomic, cultural and other issues.

Bridge of trust and friendship has been built now breaking the wall of mistrust and suspicion that was created in the post-1975 period, he added.

Mentioning that there has been progress in the Teesta water sharing issue, Quader said many unsettled issues between the two next-door neighbors have already been resolved through discussion.

The Indian high commissioner said though Bangabandhu is the father of the nation of Bangladesh, he is a hero to the Indian people too.

Recalling Bangabandhu’s visit to India before his return to Bangladesh in 1972 after the country’s independence, he said the people of India had expressed deep love and extended warm greetings to Bangabandhu on the occasion.

On the occasion, Quader expressed his optimism that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi would visit Bangladesh during the program to be arranged on the occasion of golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence.
