Earlier, President of India Ram Nath Kovind paid homage at Savar National Memorial. On Wednesday (December 15) at around 1:15 pm, he paid his respects by laying a wreath at the memorial. Then he stood there in silence for a while. He later signed the visitor's book and planted the last sapling.
The Indian President arrived in Dhaka at 11:20 a.m. on Wednesday (December 15) on a three-day visit to take part in a special event to mark the golden jubilee of Mujib's centenary and the victory of Bengalis in the war of liberation.
Although it is customary to greet a foreign government or head of state with flowers, it has not been due to the coronavirus pandemic, nor has there been a handshake between the two heads of state.
After completing the formalities of the memorial, the President of India visited the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Memorial Museum in Dhanmondi to pay homage to the architect of Bangladesh Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
