Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh will visit Bangladesh for two days from Wednesday. On her first visit after taking over as Foreign Secretary, Ms. Singh will be Dhaka at a time of political deadlock and violence rocking the country.

India has become a factor in the elections due to the Centre's inability to ratify the Land Boundary Agreement and implement the Teesta Waters Treaty. On the other hand, the Opposition is accusing the Awami League Government of giving concessions to India with incommensurate returns.

Besides meeting Bangladesh Foreign Secretary of Md. Shahidul Haque, Ms. Singh will call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Foreign Minister Abdul Hasan Mahmood Ali, said official sources in the Ministry of External Affairs.

In addition, the Foreign Secretary will meet the Leader of Opposition and Bangladesh Nationalist Party Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and Chairman of Jatiya Party Gen (Retd.) Hussain Muhammed Ershad.
