‘India Is Getting What It Wants, But What About Bangladesh?’

Nitin A Gokhale WhatsApp Channel

NEW DELHI: There is an anti-Indian perception in Bangladesh which flows from the view that India has benefited more from the relationship than Dhaka. Key Bangladeshi concerns remain unaddressed including its share of Teesta waters. The Citizenship Amendment Act is another issue with Bangladeshi civil society taking exception to comments by senior Indian leaders. StratNews Global speaks to Munshi Faiz Ahmed, who was Bangladesh’s ambassador to China and Singapore. He believes that if these and other issues are resolved, the path ahead will smoothen out considerably. He warns that India needs to be less hypersensitive to his country’s dealings with China.
