No point providing land to India for Agartala airport extension: Bangladesh opposition

Dhaka, Aug 19 (UNI) Opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Monday said there is no reason for Bangladesh to provide its land to India in Brahmanbaria to expand Agartala airport.
"There have been media reports about it (India’s desire to use Bangladeshi land in Brahmanbaria). We are closely observing the matter," said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
In August, the Indian government has sought 52 acres of land from Bangladesh to expand the runway of Agartala's Maharaja Bir Bikram airport.
Mr Alamgir further said, "Bangladesh government has not agreed yet, and there is no question about
providing any land. There’s no reason to give our land to any other country."
Fakhrul said their party is not ‘optimistic’ about getting any positive outcome to resolve the outstanding problems with India from the visit of its External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar.
"We have been hearing for 10-12 years that the Awami League government’s relation with India reached the highest level, but we still didn’t get the fair share of water from the Teesta River. Border killing could not be stopped as no step has been taken to remove the trade deficit with India," he said.
The BNP leader said that none of Bangladesh's pending issue with India has so far been resolved.
But India has solved its own problems with us. That is why we can not be too optimistic and, therefore, do not expect much from this visit.
