New Delhi (NVI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Dhaka to attend celebrations of the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s Independence on March 26, Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said.

The Foreign Minister said that PM Modi will also attend the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

During the visit, the Prime Minister will also visit Hindu temples in Satkhira and Gopalganj’s Orakandi and pay his respects to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at his tomb in Tungiapara, according to Dhaka Tribune.

The government of Bangladesh on the occasion of the golden jubilee of independence and Bangabandhu’s birth centenary, will organise a 10-day program from March 17 to March 26.
