    KOLKATA, Nov 22, 2019 (BSS)- West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banarjee today showed interest to import bicycles from Bangladesh for mutual benefits.

    “There is a huge demand of bicycles in West Bengal and Bangladesh can avail the opportunity by exporting it to West Bengal” she said while paying a courtesy call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Hotel Taj Bengal.

    After the meeting, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen briefed reporters about the outcome of the meeting.

    In this connection, Mamata Banerjee made two proposals.

    Firstly, she said, Bangladeshi entrepreneurs can set up bicycle industries in joint ventures in West Bengal, and to facilitate such move her government will allocate land for them.

    Secondly, the Bangladeshi investors can set up such industries in Bangladesh’s bordering areas, Mamata said adding that it will reduce transportation cost to a great extent.

    The foreign minister said the West Bengal Chief Minister put emphasis on cooperation between Bangladesh and West Bengal in the fields of education, healthcare and industries.

    Mamata Banerjee apprised the premier of their social welfare programmes.

    She also mentioned that West Bengal achieved highest 8 percent GDP among the Indian states.

    The prime minister informed Mamata Banerjee of social safety net programmes.

    Sheikh Hasina also highlighted various steps of her government for development of education in the country.

    At the beginning of the meeting, they exchanged greetings, the foreign minister said.

    He said that the West Bengal chief minister thanked the Bangladesh Prime Minister for visiting Kolkata to watch the historic day night test match between Bangladesh and India at Eden Gardens.

    Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM MOzammel Haque, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam, Foreign Secretary Shahidul Huq, PMO Secretary Sajjadul Hassan, Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Moazzem Ali and Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Riva Ganguli Das were present.

    Ludhiana area is full of factories that make Indian standard bicycles. Why Bangladesh?

    More importantly - Mamata Didi can do something about Teesta water, which is a need of the hour.

    Talking about setting up bicycle factories seems to be a joke and won't be taken seriously when they are damming every international river flowing into Bangladesh.

    This woman has mental issues....
