Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina on Monday unveiled “e-plaques” for development projects in the neighbouring county.

Modi and Hasina, through video conference, unveiled “e-plaques” to formally launch supply of buses and trucks, inauguration of 36 community clinics, 11 water treatment plants, and extension of National Knowledge Network to Bangladesh — the projects which were being implemented with financial support from India.

Modi noted that it was his sixth video conference with the Bangladesh prime minister. He said that Hasina's vision was the biggest inspiration for stronger connectivity between India and Bangladesh.

He said that the projects unveiled on Monday would boost not just transport connectivity, but also knowledge connectivity. He said that the National Knowledge Network would connect scholars and research institutes in Bangladesh to India and the world.

Modi said buses and trucks would assist the efforts towards affordable public transportation, water treatment plants would help supply clean water and community clinics would benefit about two lakh people in the neighbouring country.

He said the projects showed that India-Bangladesh relations were playing a key role in improving the quality of life of people.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also joined Modi during the video conference.
