A red carpet was rolled out for PM Hasina and national anthems of Bangladesh and India were played during the ceremony.

On her arrival at the presidential palace around 9:00am on Saturday (June 22), the Bangladesh prime minister was received by her host Modi.

A horse mounted team of the president’s bodyguards escorted her motorcade from the Rashtrapati Bhavan gate to the forecourt.

Subsequently, she will head to Hyderabad House for the one-on-one meeting with Narendra Modi followed by delegation-level talks, witnessing the signing ceremony of MoUs and agreements. Afterward, both prime ministers will give press statements and attend a banquet luncheon, hosted by Narendra Modi at Hyderabad House.
