Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina Slams Opposition’s ‘Boycott India’ Campaign

    Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has strongly criticized the opposition for spearheading ‘Boycott India’ campaign, questioning their sincerity. This boycott arises amidst allegations by the opposition that India has been meddling in the internal politics of Bangladesh.

    Challenging the Opposition

    In a fiery speech, Prime Minister Hasina challenged the opposition, particularly the BNP leaders advocating the boycott, questioning the authenticity of their stance. She pointedly asked how many Indian sarees the wives of these campaigners possessed and suggested they should burn those sarees if they truly believed in the boycott.

    Dependency on Indian Spices

    Furthermore, Prime Minister Hasina highlighted the reliance of many Bangladeshis on Indian spices for their daily consumption, emphasizing the interconnectedness between the two nations.

    Strong Bilateral Relations

    Bangladesh has historically maintained a positive relationship with India under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. This relationship has fostered economic growth, cultural exchange, and strategic cooperation between the two neighboring countries.

    Record Fifth Term for Prime Minister Hasina

    Earlier this year, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was reelected for an unprecedented fifth term, solidifying her position as the longest-serving woman leader in the government’s history.

    Election Victory Amidst Controversy

    The ruling Awami League, led by Sheikh Hasina, secured a landslide victory in the Bangladesh general election despite calls for a boycott on election day. Despite controversy surrounding the election, the Awami League emerged victorious, clinching 216 out of the 299 parliamentary seats.

    Origins of the #BoycottIndia Trend

    Reports indicate that the opposition’s #BoycottIndia trend gained momentum in response to alleged Indian interference in Bangladesh’s internal affairs. Influential leaders linked to the BNP spearheaded the campaign, accusing India of meddling in Bangladesh’s electoral process.

    Allegations of Interference

    Several tweets and videos launched as part of the campaign alleged long-standing Indian interference in Bangladesh’s electoral affairs. However, some claims, such as India’s purported lack of assistance to Sri Lanka during economic turmoil, have been questioned for accuracy.
