Dhaka: At a time when India is witnessing major protests over the new citizenship[ law passed by the government, Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Sunday said India is not pushing anyone to Bangladesh.

The Minister said his government will send people back if anybody other than Bangladesh citizens enters the country through the Bangladesh-India border without following the due process.

He said his government has asked for a list from India if there is any Bangladeshi living in the neighbouring nation illegally.

"Let's know it (Bangladesh seeks info from India)," he was quoted as saying by The Daily Star.

Responding to a question on National Register of Citizenship (NRC), he was quoted as saying by the newspaper that India termed it their internal matter and assured Bangladesh that it will in no way affect Bangladesh.

"The Bangladesh-India relations are normal. The relations won't be affected...the relations are very sweet," the Foreign Minister was quoted as saying by The Daily Star, explaining reasons behind cancellation of his New Delhi visit.
