Modi said that one of the first protests of his political career was for the freedom of Bangladesh.

“The freedom struggle of Bangladesh was a significant moment in my journey too… My colleagues and I had done a satyagraha in India… I was in my early twenties. I even had the opportunity to go to jail during this satyagraha for Bangladesh’s struggle for freedom,” he said.

The Indian premier wore a  “Mujib Jacket” as a tribute to the Bangladesh founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

“This is one of the most memorable days of my life. I am grateful that Bangladesh has included me in this event,” Modi said.

Modi also praised the Indian Army for their role in 1971 war.

“We will never ever forget the sacrifice the soldiers of this great nation have made and also those by Indians who stood beside the soldiers of Bangladesh… we have not forgotten their bravery and courage…. we will never forget it,” the Indian premier added.

Modi also said that it is necessary for the region that the two countries progress together, as both believe in democracy.

Modi’s visit to the country has triggered protests at various places, four people were killed in clashes in Chittagong during a protest.
