India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, announced an immediate emergency financial aid package worth Rs 1,000 Crore for West Bengal, and Rs 500 Crore for Odisha, due to the damage caused by the powerful Cyclone Amphan that ripped through the coastal towns of India and Bangladesh.

The eye of the Cyclone is expected to touch land any time soon,” said Mrutyunjay Mohapatra, India’s Meteorological Department Director General.

Many in India believe the following three things contributed to that country’s strong freelance growth:

On the third day of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit to Delhi Sunday, Hasina inaugurated a drinking water project which will be supplied to Sabruma town in Tripura from Feni river water.

India and Bangladesh signed a series of memorandums of understanding Saturday, one of which will jointly launch a ‘coastal surveillance’ system. Although no details have been provided by the two countries, it is initially known that India will help establish a modern radar system in the coastal areas of Bangladesh according to this agreement. The move is also said to ensure maritime security in the Bay of Bengal.
Whenever a Bangladeshi hears the name of the Central Intelligence Agency, America’s spy outfit, the one thing that pops up in his mind is the assassination of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, founder of Bangladesh. When a group of military officers killed the nation’s founding leader, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, many Bengalis—as well as foreigners—blamed the United States. Mujib’s daughter, Sheikh Hasina, now prime minister of Bangladesh, decades later still believes that America was behind her father’s assassination.
Gen. H. M. Ershad duped the United States after President Ziaur Rahman‘s assassination on May 30, 1981, telling the American ambassador that he had no plans to overthrow Justice Abdus Sattar, who succeeded the slain ruler as acting president.
“Bangladesh Army Chief of Staff Ershad told me June 25 that he had no interest in politics and that the military should not interfere in constitutional government unless there is a complete breakdown of civil authority and effectiveness,” Ambassador David T. Schneider informed the State Department on June 25, 1981.
Two months after Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina returned to power for the second time, her government faced a rebellion by the country’s paramilitary border guards. The mutiny, which took place in the Bangladesh Rifles headquarters in Dhaka on 25 February 2009, left as many as 74 dead, including several ranking army officers, who had been assigned to command the force.
Public speculation by many, including the prime minister herself, termed it as an external conspiracy. Investigations found no evidence of outside interference. However, one thing became clear: the army was aware of the unrest days before it occurred.
