Hasina wishes Sonia 'speedy and complete' recovery



Dhaka: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has wished "early and complete recovery" to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who has undergone a surgery in a US hospital.

"On behalf of the people and government of Bangladesh, and on my own personal behalf and that of my children (family), I wish you early and complete recovery. You are always in our prayers," Hasina said in a letter to Gandhi.

Recalling Gandhi's recent visit to Bangladesh, Hasina said "the impact you made during your visit and your generous message of affection and praise that you lavished on us have endeared you with all of us here and reaffirmed resoundingly that the bonds of close friendship between Bangladesh and India are deep and abidingly enduring".

"At this hour of personal angst, I simply wish to convey to you that I and the people of Bangladesh stand by you, my sister, and pray for your full and speedy recovery."
