Trinamool’s Sugata Bose hails Land Boundary Agreement Bill as historic in LS
After Rajya Sabha, Trinamool today lent its support to the 119th Constitution Amendment Bill, 2013 in Lok Sabha thus paving the way for land boundary agreement with Bangladesh.
Speaking on behalf of the party, Sugata Bose delivered an emotive speech, thanking everyone for rising above partisan politics for national interest, state interest and human interest.
Reminiscing about his first-hand experience of Muktijuddho in 1971, Sugata Bose rued the fact that it took 41 years to ratify the agreement signed by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibar Rahman and Indira Gandhi.
Quoting Tagore and Jibanananda Das, the eminent historian said, “What we are doing today will be a solution for a intractable problem. Let the message go out to the rest of South Asia we want peace and development for the downtrodden.”
