Winding up his three-day tour to Assam and Meghalaya, President of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh Md Abdul Hamid left for New Delhi from LGBI Airport on Saturday afternoon. Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi and chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal were present at the Airport to see off the President.
Expressing his profound happiness on the tour, President Hamid in his departing remarks said that the visit to Assam and Meghalaya was very nostalgic for him as during the difficult times of Bangladesh War of Liberation he came to this part of northeast. “I have visited Balat, Shillong and Meghalaya and I was very glad to see those places,” the President said with contentment.
President Hamid also extended invitation to Governor Mukhi and CM Sonowal to visit Bangladesh. He said that relationship with neighbours is very important for development and their visit would bolster the same. He also observed that peace and tranquillity in the region would lead to faster development.
During the visit, the President Hamid was accompanied by first lady Rashida Khanam and other family members apart from the official delegation.
