New Delhi, August 12: Neighboring country India is hoping that the upcoming parliamentary elections in Bangladesh will be peaceful. Spokesperson of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, Arindam Bagchi, said this at a media briefing on Friday afternoon.

In response to a question from reporters, he said, "I think I said this last week... Look, I don't have any particular comment on the internal situation there (Bangladesh)."

Last week i.e. on August 3, the spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs of India said that New Delhi wants the people of that country to decide on the elections and democratic process of Bangladesh. We hope the election will be conducted in a peaceful environment.

Meanwhile, Arindam Bagchi refused to comment on the caretaker government in Friday's media briefing.

He said, these are the internal affairs of Bangladesh. However, he mentioned, there is a position of the country's constitution (of Bangladesh) in this regard.

In a regular press briefing, Arindam Bagchi said that India is closely monitoring the situation there through its High Commission in Dhaka.

He said, what is happening in Bangladesh, it affects us (India).
