Not natural gas but LPG to be exported to India: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina told that Bangladesh will export only imported and processed liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to India, not the country’s natural gas.  

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina came up with the remarks while addressing a press conference about the outcomes of her recent official visits to the USA and India on Wednesday (Oct 9).

PM said that we will import LPG from abroad and export it to India after bottling it. LPG is not natural gas and it’s not produced in Bangladesh.

The PM said that it totally impossible happen that Sheikh Hasina will sacrifice the country’s interests, on October 5, Bangladesh and India signed seven bilateral documents, aiming to further strengthen the relations between the two countries.

Sheikh Hasina also told that those who have raised questions and talked about the deals with India, have forgotten the past, it can never happen that Sheikh Hasina will sell Bangladesh’s interests and everyone should know it.
