The people of a country will decide how the elections will be. However, Pankaj Sharan, the former high commissioner of India in Bangladesh commented that the elections of both countries are important to both countries as neighboring countries.
He made this comment at the Jahur Hossain Chowdhury Memorial Lecture 2023 ceremony organized by Bhor Kagazi at Hotel Sonargaon on Monday. He said that the government of a country should be decided only by the people of that country.
The former High Commissioner of India also said, ‘Bangladesh has been at a high level in relation to India for the last 15 years. However, not only the achievement of the government in the development of relations between the two countries, scholars, mass media, intellectuals and the young generation have many roles to play in the development of relations between one country and another.
Tarek A Karim, the former high commissioner of Bangladesh in India, said, ‘There is only one reason why Bangladesh is a role model for India’s relations, the good understanding between the two countries.’
Pankaj Saran was the High Commissioner of India in Dhaka during 2012-15.
