India Bangladesh Recent Agreement

Experts also accuse India of ignoring any of its concerns, including trade, water division and, more recently, the issue of Rohingya refugees. However, the Bangladeshi government has denied such allegations. In June 2014, during her first official foreign visit, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj concluded various agreements aimed at strengthening relations. In recent years, the deaths of Bangladeshi citizens on the Indo-Bangladesh border have become one of the embarrassments between bilateral relations between the two countries. According to Human Rights Watch, nearly 1,000 Bangladeshis were killed between 2001 and 2011. [18] [19] In September 2011, the two countries signed an important border delimitation agreement to end four decades of border conflict. It became known as the Tin Bigha Corridor. India has also granted 24-hour access to Bangladeshi citizens in the Tin Bigha corridor. The agreement included the exchange of enclaves, with the participation of 51,000 people in 111 Indian enclaves in Bangladesh and 51 enclaves in Bangladesh, India. The total area of land is expected to be 7000 hectares. [25] The agreements have been strongly criticized by many Bangladeshis, who have said they will only help India. They also asked the Dhaka government to publish details about them.

Hasina`s government made no official statement prior to its visit to India, and citizens were only made aware of the agreements through news agencies. Ar Raji, an assistant professor at Chittagong Public University in Bangladesh, said in his Facebook post: "The locals arrived suddenly and through a third party [media] to learn that Bangladesh has signed several agreements with its neighbour. I`m ashamed and I`m protesting against it. "Since Bangladesh has moved from the least developed country (LDC) to a developing country, India has proposed to negotiate a free trade agreement that includes goods and services that Lahiri believes. During Sheikh Hasina`s four-day visit to New Delhi in April 2017, Bangladesh and India signed two defence agreements, the first between India and one of its neighbours.
