He said these while speaking as the chief guest at the flag-off ceremony of the 100 youth delegation's visit to India at an elite hotel in Dhaka's Banani on Tuesday (October 11) night. Obaidul Quader commented that the hatred-enmity has delayed the relationship between Bangladesh and India.

After visiting India, he will come to Bangladesh and work as a youth representative to spread the experience there."
