India, Bangladesh not just ‘pass pass’ but ‘saath saath’: Modi

Dhaka, June 7 (IANS) India and Bangladesh are not just “pass pass” (close to each other) but also “saath saath” (together), Prime Minister Narendra Modi said here on Sunday.

Addressing intellectuals in Dhaka at the end of his two-day visit, Modi said not just Asia but the entire world “will do a detailed post-mortem” on India-Bangladesh ties following his visit to see what has been gained.

“But if in one sentence I am to describe the ties, people will think that we are ‘pass pass’ but now the world will have to accept that we are not just ‘pass pass’ but ‘saath saath’,” he said to loud applause.

He said his two-day visit has ended, but “I feel that actually the yatra (in ties) has just begun”.

“I have an emotional attachment with Bangladesh,” he added.
