Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina to watch the second Test match between Bangladesh and India that will begin at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on November 22.
Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Thursday confirmed Modi’s invitation letter to Hasina to watch the second match of the two-match Test series saying the Prime Minister will visit Kolkata on November 22.
However, Prime Minister Modi will not join Sheikh Hasina in Kolkata due to his pre-engagement, said the Foreign Minister while briefing reporters at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
He said Prime Minister Hasina will be treated as a State guest and she will spend a couple of hours there before her return to Dhaka later in the day.
Earlier, President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Sourav Ganguly invited Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi to watch the second Test match to be held at Eden Gardens in Kolkata from November 22 to 26.
