opportunity to widen and strengthen their cooperation Related News The ratification of the Land Boundary Agreement (LBA) of 1974 was warmly welcomed across the political divide both in India and Bangladesh The Lok Sabha showed rare unanimity in passing the Constitution (119th Amendment) Bill to settle its 41-year-old border dispute with Bangladesh The implementation of the LBA will enable the two countries to exchange lands known as enclaves or chhitmahal in each other’s territory The bill will also help in resolving the long-standing problem of land in adverse possession Bangladesh and India share a 4096-km international border the fifth-longest land border in the world From 1947 till now the unresolved problem of enclaves and adverse possession has been a source of constant friction It was hoped that the Indira-Mujib LBA in 1974 would settle both these problems but for a variety of reasons it has taken four decades to resolve all the pending issues and for the Indian Parliament to finally ratify the agreement There is certainly a sense of hope in Bangladesh that the ratification will open up a new era in Bangladesh-India relations The people of Bangladesh are now looking forward not just to the visit of the Indian cricket team in June but also the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Share This Article Related Article It is expected that the implementation of the LBA will help in improving the quality of life of 51549 people who have been living in misery in the enclaves deprived of basic human rights For all practical purposes they have been stateless people living a hand-to-mouth existence denied access to schools and hospitals as well as other basic services There are 111 Indian enclaves in Bangladesh and 51 Bangladeshi enclaves inside India All the inhabitants can now look forward to a national identity and enjoying the same benefits and services as their neighbours living outside the enclaves One of the major irritants in the bilateral relations between the two countries has been the problem of border management Notwithstanding the presence of a sizeable border security force on both sides as well as over 3000 km of barbed wire fencing on the Indian side the number of persons killed on the border for the most part Bangladeshis is among the highest in the world The Indo-Bangladesh border is also notorious for smuggling apart from trafficking in arms drugs and people People expect that one important outcome of the LBA will be improved border management based on cooperation increased trade and the transformation of the border into a peaceful one free of killings The ratification of the LBA and the likelihood of a visit by Modi in the near future provides both countries an opportunity to widen and strengthen their cooperation Security cooperation between the two countries during the past six years can be described as excellent But there is room for further improvement Equally impressive has been the wide-ranging cooperation in the energy sector Trade has expanded as have Indian investments in Bangladesh Bangladesh today enjoys duty-free access to the Indian market However in order to see a meaningful expansion in its exports to India some non-tariff barriers need to be removed Both countries need to pay special attention to improving road rail and river connectivity in the entire sub-region In particular there is a need to improve the physical infrastructure in Bangladesh and initiate action in the construction of a deep sea port which could be of immense benefit to the Indian Northeast Nepal Bhutan and of course Bangladesh Perhaps the most difficult problem in the bilateral relationship is the issue of sharing the waters of the 54 rivers that the two countries share It is important for Modi to implement the framework agreement signed in September 2011 during then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit to Dhaka providing for cooperation between India Bangladesh Nepal and Bhutan One key feature of this cooperation should be in the field of joint harnessing of the water resources shared by these four countries India and Bangladesh both suffer from a “perception problem” In Bangladesh India is viewed with suspicion because of its geostrategic interests overwhelming economic and military strength apparent reluctance to resolve longstanding problems like the LBA and the sharing of Teesta waters Indians on the other hand tend to view Bangladesh as a country where extremist groups are gaining in strength and where there is widespread poverty triggering illegal immigration into India There is little awareness in India of the enormous progress and rapid growth that has taken place in the neighbouring country of the excellent social indicators or that Bangladesh has achieved self-sufficiency in food There also isn’t awareness or recognition of the fact that today Bangladesh directly and indirectly contributes well over $20 billion annually to the Indian economy The implementation of the LBA is expected to reduce this gap in perception and remove some of the widespread scepticism that exists in the mind of the public about a durable long-term relationship Although it has taken a year the ratification of the LBA can now be viewed as a testament to Modi’s “neighbourhood first” policy But it is important to understand that the development of a meaningful relationship built on mutual trust and benefit will require serious and prolonged interaction at all levels between the two countries There is a need for regular summit-level meetings to review the implementation of projects and agreements There is a need for greater people-to-people contact — this would require removing the multiple headaches faced by Bangladeshis in obtaining an Indian visa There is also a need for vastly expanded public diplomacy and cultural exchange programmes on both sides An effective communication strategy is essential Improving connectivity expanding trade and investment can take Bangladesh from its current 6 per cent growth rate to 8-10 per cent in the next two to four years The LBA provides an excellent opportunity to take India-Bangladesh

NewsNew Delhi: Union Health Minister JP Nadda on Monday met President Pranab Mukherjee and briefed him on the ordinance on the uniform medical entrance examination NEET that seeks to keep state boards out of its ambit The meeting lasted for more than half-an-hour and the minister is learnt to have briefed the President on three set of issues — different exams of state boards syllabi and regional languages The President had asked Nadda’s ministry to explain the reason for taking the ordinance route to keep state boards out of the ambit of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) File photo of JP Nadda AFP The meeting between the President and the health minister was satisfactory sources said The ordinance was on Saturday sent to the President who is to leave for China on Tuesday Nadda was to attend a health summit in Geneva but had to cancel the trip to meet the President The ordinance cleared by the Union Cabinet earlier on Friday is aimed at "partially" overturning a Supreme Court order which said all government colleges deemed universities and private medical colleges would be covered under NEET The President has also sought the opinion of in-house legal experts on the ordinance The assent of the President is still awaited Clarifying that the exemption is only for the state government seats government sources had said the state seats which are earmarked in the private medical colleges have also been exempted Different states earmark seats in various private medical colleges for state quota so that students from one state can get seats in another state The next phase of the exam is scheduled for 24 July Nearly 65 lakh students have already taken the medical entrance test in the first phase of NEET held on 1 May Health Ministry sources said that seven states will take medical exams as per NEET while in six other states around four lakh students have already taken the examinations The states flagged various issues in the health ministers conference recently including problems related to language and syllabus for students They said the students affiliated to state boards will find it tough to appear for the uniform test as early as July Sources maintained that the ordinance is not to challenge the Supreme Court order Nadda had earlier dismissed as "baseless" the media reports that the Centre through an ordinance was trying to finish NEET "NEET has been implemented It is in existence The first phase is over The second phase will take place on 24 July" he had said The exam will be applicable for those applying for Central government and private medical colleges Once the ordinance is issued students of state government boards will not have to sit for NEET on 24 July They however will have to become part of the uniform
