Border pact with India win-win deal, says B'desh PM Sheikh Hasina
<p><strong>New York:</strong> Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday asked the opponents of Land Boundary Agreement in India to give up their opposition to the historic measure, saying settling the vexed issue would be a "win-win" situation for both the countries.</p>

New York: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday asked the opponents of Land Boundary Agreement in India to give up their opposition to the historic measure, saying settling the vexed issue would be a "win-win" situation for both the countries.

The issue of the agreement, which is stuck because of stiff opposition by some Indian political parties, was discussed when she met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New York on Saturday.

When asked about the issue, Hasina told PTI, "People of India, all the political parties should take some positive steps, what we expect from them."

The Indian government has mooted a bill to ratify the agreement under which the two countries will exchange territories but the proposed legislation could not be passed during the last session of Parliament as some political parties strongly opposed it.

"They (political parties of India) should solve (the issue). That will bring the two countries closer. Because we know there is nothing to lose, nothing to gain. It is a win-win situation. So the opposition should understand and play their due role," the Bangladesh Prime Minister said.

At the same time, she expressed confidence that the issue will be resolved.

Asked whether she had got such an assurance from Singh and the Indian government, Hasina said, "Not only from the government but opposition and others also, that they will consider it."

The agreement is aimed at settling the issue of enclaves and adverse possession along the 4,069-km border between India and Bangladesh and is seen as an important confidence building measure between the two neighbours.

The agreement provides for exchange of about 160 enclaves between the two countries.

Trinamool Congress party has said it will not allow territories of West Bengal to be transferred to Bangladesh.

The government subsequently reached out to the party which set up a four-member committee to discuss the matter.

While seeking the support of Trinamool, which is ruling West Bengal, the government enlisted how the agreement would be beneficial for India.

It also highlighted a number of steps taken by the Sheikh Hasina government that have benefited India.
