"The trip to Dhaka was very successful and I am overwhelmed by the hospitality of the people," she said. Banerjee also said she will attend the swearing-in ceremony of Nitish Kumar in Patna on Sunday.


Banerjee spent the International Mother Language Day in the neighbouring country and participated in the events to commemorate the day. She also met Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and assured the Bangladeshi side that the Teesta water-sharing issue will be resolved soon.

Banerjee had opposed the treaty when the Congress-led UPA government was in power at the Centre and also refused to go to Dhaka in 2012 with the then prime minister Manmohan Singh, upsetting the bilateral relation between the two neighbours.
