 Shillong: Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh’s forthcoming visit to Bangladesh will include besides Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma, also the Deputy Chief Minister BM Lanong and Jaiaw legislator Paul Lyngdoh, sources informed.

It is also learnt that Chief Secretary WMS Pariat will also be part of the high-profile team visiting Bangladesh for the two-day trip from September 6.

On the discussion table would be thorny border issues which has led to frequent skirmishes. Trade and commerce are also important discussion points. Sources have also informed that the issue of cross-border terrorism would form an important part of the agenda.

It may be mentioned that under the Sheikh Hasina regime several militant groups have been deprived of operational space leading to their surrender subsequently to peace talks. Sources inform that ULFA and NDFB leaders were first arrested by Bangladesh security forces and later staged surrender at the Indo-Bangladesh border.

GNLA supremo, Champion Sangma, is believed to be taking shelter in Bangladesh and so are leaders of other smaller outfits. But sources say this might not be a specific point of discussion.
