Foreign Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said Bangladesh development is not possible without good relations with India as both the countries share common border of several thousand kilometers. 

“The country (India) which we (Bangladesh) have several thousand kilometers of border … the country with which we have borders on three sides---- our development is not possible without maintaining good relations with that country,” he told the reporters at the foreign ministry here. 
The foreign minister said it is not possible to maintain peace and stability in Bangladesh without good relations with the neighbor.

Hasan who is also Awami League’s joint general secretary made the remarks while responding a question regarding BNP’s failed programme on boycott of the Indian products.   
“Their efforts (call for boycotting Indian products) went unsuccessful. 

They know it, too. It will be refused by the people of the country again if BNP comes up with the agenda afresh,” he said. 

He said BNP will further be isolated from the people, nothing more than that if they again call for a boycott of Indian products.

The AL leader said there are Indian products in many of their (BNP leaders) houses.

Hasan said the main aim of BNP’s boycott Indian products campaign was to create a crisis in the domestic markets to create instability in the country’s economy.
