Sheikh Hasina: Teesta water pact can transform India-Bangladesh ties
Apr 11, 2017, 06:35
Declaring that nothing would ever "spoil" the special relationship with India, visiting Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday invited Indian business to invest in her country, assuring all facilities to ease doing business in order to defeat the "common enemy of poverty". We didn't get waters, but at least we got something else - electricity.
Dwelling on reservation West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banarjee's about Teesta agreement, Sheikh Hasina went on to say, "I talked with didi (sister indicating Mamata)". "Once it happens, the phase of Indo-Bangladesh relations will undergo another transformation", she said.
The media conference will be held at prime minister's official residence Ganabhaban at 4:30pm, Hasina's Deputy Press Secretary Ashraful Alam Khokon told bdnews24.com.
"Prime minister Narendra Modi has assured us (of a deal soon) and we are optimistic about it", said the Bangladesh premier. Stressing that common water resources must act as a uniting force, she pitched for a comprehensive solution to sharing of waters of all common rivers between the two countries.
"I don't know without that shelter what would have been our condition".
Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh had comprehensively addressed India's security concerns, which has helped in trust-building between the two countries. "I assure them all facilities", she said.
Mamata's opposition to water share appears to be the biggest stumbling block to reaching an agreement on the Teesta River.
Though an agreement on sharing of the Teesta waters was drafted ahead of then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to Bangladesh in 2011, it was withdrawn at the last moment when Banerjee protested against its provisions.
