New Delhi, Oct 19 (ANI): The Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina, was in the Bangladeshi enclaves of the Dahagram and Angarpota on an official tour today. She crossed 'Tin Bigha' Corridor through India into Bangladesh and back through Pathgram area.


"Since this was for the first time that a Bangladesh Prime Minister was passing through the Indian Territory by road, the Government of India decided to give a brief reception to her at the crossing point," a Ministry of Home Affairs release said.


Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh accompanied by senior officers of the Ministry of Home Affairs and BSF received her at the Corridor. She was accompanied by about fifty Ministers and Members of Parliament.


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had brief discussion with the Union Health Minister and the Minister of State for Home and said that she was extremely thrilled to be passing through the Corridor through which India has now provided 24-hour access to the people living in the enclaves to the mainland of Bangladesh.


She also said that providing 24-hour access to the enclaves has been her dream since 1986 when she was in the opposition. India has now made her dream come true.


The Bangladeshi Prime Minister thanked the Government of India for the arrangements made for the people of Bangladesh. (ANI)
