New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina yesterday jointly unveiled e-plaques for development projects in Bangladesh.

The two leaders, through video conference, unveiled e-plaques for supply of buses and trucks, inauguration of 36 community clinics, 11 water treatment plants and extension of National Knowledge Network to Bangladesh, a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs said.

Speaking on the occasion, Modi said this is his sixth video conference with Hasina. He said PM Hasina's vision is the biggest inspiration for stronger connectivity between India and Bangladesh.
