July 5 (RepublicWorld) – Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given over 2,600 kg mangoes to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
The mangoes which were gifted as a goodwill gesture will be received by PM Modi and Mamata Banerjee soon.
According to local reports in Bangladesh, the mango shipment arrived at the Benapole-Petrapole check post on the India-Bangladesh border on Sunday. From there, the shipment will be delivered to the residences of PM Modi and the West Bengal Chief Minister.
Bangladesh is also planning to send the additional stock of mangoes to India’s northeastern states like Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Tripura. The ‘Mango diplomacy’ move gains prominence at a time when Bangladesh has reportedly expressed dismay with India due to the delay of COVID-19 vaccines.
