Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Pranay Kumar Verma said his government is serious about the needs of Bangladeshi students as many students from the neighboring country pursue higher education in India.
“We take all the needs of Bangladeshi students seriously, including visa processing,” Prannoy said.

He said this on Thursday while addressing the reunion ceremony of former students who got higher education in India at Old India House, Gulshan in the capital.

The event was jointly organized by Moitree, a platform for alumni of higher education in India, and the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.

Pranay Kumar said that Bangladeshi students have again started going to India for higher education after a break due to the Corona pandemic.

“They (students) have built new bridges between India and Bangladesh. Through them Indians are getting to know about the development and potential of Bangladesh.

The envoy said that India-Bangladesh relations have gone beyond bilateral diplomacy and have become people-to-people ties.

He said, “In order to improve the cordial relations between the two countries, the Government of India has taken new initiatives in various fields including tourism.”

The High Commissioner said that the celebration of Moitri Day on 6th December has strengthened the cooperation, promise and commitment of both the countries.

He said, “The roots of the relations between Bangladesh and India are the liberation struggle.”

Moitri’s advisor barrister Turin Afroz said, ‘India is our best friend and the sacrifice of Indian soldiers in the war of liberation is unforgettable.’

“We needed the support of a country for our independence. India was the first country to support our independence,” she said.

Moitri started the journey on 30 November 2017.
