Mamata in Dhaka

She  kicks off her much-waited tour

She will stay at Pan Pacific Sonargoan Hotel.
Her visit has drawn widespread attention since it was due to her intense opposition that former Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh failed to ink the Teesta water-sharing treaty during his Bangladesh trip in September 2011.
She was initially on the prime minister’s tour party, but pulled out at the last minute.

It is up to New Delhi to resolve bilateral issues, but Dhaka hopes her visit would have an impact on resolving pending issues between the countries.
“We hope she would reiterate West Bengal’s support to Bangladesh for resolving the pending issues,” junior foreign minister Md Shahriar Alam earlier told bdnews24.com.
Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali invited her to attend Feb 21 Language Day programmes.
