Land transfer Bill: Bangla Envoy lobbies with Advani

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, June 14 � Faced with an impasse over ratification of the land boundary agreement, Bangladesh High Commissioner Tariq Karim on Friday met senior BJP leader and NDA convenor LK Advani ostensibly to lobby for the Opposition party�s support for the early passage of the land transfer Bill.

The visit by the High Commissioner of Bangladesh was described as a courtesy call by the spokesman of the Mission.

Despite several attempts by the UPA government to introduce the Constitution Amendment Bill ratifying the agreement signed during Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh�s tour of Bangladesh, the Opposition has managed to derail the government�s plan.

Since then the UPA government has on several occasions assured the Sheikh Hasina Government at the highest level that New Delhi was serious about passage of the Bill. The UPA government had listed the Bill for introduction in Rajya Sabha, but following stiff opposition by AGP and BJP, the Centre failed in its efforts.

Sources in the BJP said that the Bangladesh High Commissioner sought the cooperation of the principal Opposition party in having the Bill passed during the ensuing Monsoon Session. The High Commissioner explained the Bangladesh Government�s position vis-�-vis the protocol signed during the meeting of the two Prime Ministers, including the water sharing and the land boundary agreements, added sources.

Recently in an interview to a TV news channel, the High Commissioner, referring to the agreements signed with India, had said that the security agreement has happened in its own self interest.
