Wishing Bangladesh on the golden jubilee celebrations of its independence, Congress president Sonia Gandhi said the courageous people of Bangladesh scripted a new destiny, transforming the history and geography of the subcontinent 50 years ago. “On this joyous occasion, and as someone who lived through the transformative 1971 by Indira Gandhi’s side along with my husband Rajivji, I am personally delighted to share the pride of Sheikh Hasina and millions of her countrymen,” Gandhi said in a video message.
Sonia, who was also invited for the celebrations, said Bangladesh’s achievements in social development, community participation, economic growth among other sectors have been impressive and have received global recognition. She said 1971 was a transformative year for both the countries, underlining that it marked the rise of Indira Gandhi as a world leader as also Rehman.
