Hasina discusses range of bilateral issues with Modi at Santiniketan

Visva Bharati University is the only central university that has the Prime Minister as its Chancellor otherwise all most all universities have President as its Chancellor.

After the convocation ceremony, the Bangladesh prime minister and her Indian counterpart jointly unveiled the commemorative plaque of Bangladesh Bhaban. Be it road, railways, worldwide waterways or coastal shipping, the two countries were rapidly moving forward in the area of connectivity, he said after inaugurating Bangladesh Bhavan on the Visva Bharati University campus along with Hasina. But I do not think there will be a discussion on Teesta water accord. We've solved the problems one by one.

She said her relationship with Visva-Bharati dates back to quite a few years. But Ms Hasina's visit comes ahead of general election in her country in six months or so.

Mr Modi remembered Rabindranath Tagore and said his legacy is not just limited to India, "Gurudev" is still a "global citizen". After the one-and-a-half-hour convocation that will start at 10.30am, Modi, Hasina, Banerjee and Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi will go to inaugurate the Bangladesh Bhavana. This complex has been set up with funds from the Bangladeshi government, and will be inaugurated by Hasina.

To facilitate the researchers, the building has a library, auditorium, cafeteria, museum with digital features, archive and other necessary amenities. "Modi" rang through the venue; the Prime Minister - who is also the Chancellor of the university - quoted Tagore (sometimes in Bengali and mostly in Hindi) to pep up the students. "We will try to follow that from now on", Sen said. In Patisar he established agro-cooperative and introduced microcredit initiatives.
