No backing independence opposers: India


India will never back those who had opposed Bangladesh’s War of Independence in 1971, its Acting High Commissioner in Dhaka said on Wednesday.

Sandeep Chakraborty also said at a discussion in Dhaka that this position was from the highest level of the country.

“It is not only my word but also the statements of the Indian President and the Prime Minister.”

The stand-in envoy said Bangladesh government’s initiative to honour members of the Indian armed forces who had taken part in Bangladesh’s Liberation War was a great step and hoped the amiable Indo-Bangla relationship would continue to flourish.

Chakraborty said India would assist Bangladesh to make it a developed country.

The ruling Awami League organised the discussion at the city’s Suhrawardy Uddyan’s ‘Bijoy Mancha’ marking the 42nd Victory Day.

Home minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir delivered the chief guest’s speech.
