Sheikh Hasina seeks Indias help to repatriate Rohingyas

PM Modi, who is the 'acharya' or chancellor of the Visva Bharati University, inaugurated the Bangladesh Bhavan, a "symbol of cultural ties between India and Bangladesh", with Hasina. The Bhavan has been constructed by Bangladesh in the campus.

"Rohingyas have taken shelter in Bangladesh. We've given them a place on humanitarian grounds. We want them to return to their country as early as possible. I request you to help us to interact with Myanmar so that they take Rohingyas back," said Sheikh Hasina.

Sheikh Hasina claimed greater right over Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore after Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed him as 'a global citizen'.

"Rabindranath Tagore belongs to both the countries because he has written the national anthems of both the nations. He wrote most of his poems in Bangladesh and that is why we can claim a greater right over him, " Sheikh Hasina said.
