  6. A flurry of high-level meetings in the last few days has once again confirmed the new momentum in India - Bangladesh relations. First. it was finance minister Pranab Mukherjee who visited Dhaka to attend the conclusion of the joint celebrations of the 150th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore. In a significant step, Mukherjee announced the conversion of $200 million of India's $1 billion line of credit to Bangladesh into grants. This was followed by Bangladeshi foreign minister Dipu Moni's visit to New Delhi for the first meeting of the India - Bangladesh Joint Consultative Commission. The commission reiterated the commitment of the neighbouring governments to enhance bilateral ties, including the early conclusion of an extradition treaty.


  7. While both visits were well received, several hurdles remain to India Bangladesh ties reaching their full potential. Prime among them are West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee's objection to the sharing of the common waters of the river Teesta and the exchange of Indian and Bangladeshi enclaves. Mamata's disagreement over the quantum of water to be shared prevented the clinching of a water sharing deal during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's Dhaka visit last September. That in turn has led Bangladesh to block Indian transit rights to the northeast.


  8. The root of the imbroglio lies in different perceptions of water flow in the river. While Mamata has already set up her own commission to collect water flow data, a joint hydrological survey to ascertain the exact quantum of water in the Teesta, especially during the dry summer months, is imperative for a final water sharing deal Meanwhile, the enclave issue represents a genuine humanitarian crisis, as enclave residents are bereft of identity and basic amenities. Despite having signed the Protocol to the 1974 Land Boundary Agreement, New Delhi is yet to ratify the instrument that will see the exchange of 162 enclaves with Dhaka. It must summon up the political will to exchange the enclaves quickly, resolving outstanding issues in relation to it.


  9. While New Delhi should certainly consult Kolkata on relations with Dhaka, a crucial selling point ought to be that West Bengal would be among the biggest beneficiaries of improved India - Bangladesh ties. From transit to trade, Kolkata can emerge as a critical hub linking India with Southeast Asia. As Bangladesh and Myanmar open up, Mamata can helm the economic renaissance of Bengal and usher in real poriborton (change). Given that the Centre has exclusive rights over foreign affairs, Mamata ought to be gracious when the former consults her on important India - Bangladesh issues. Trinamool in fact. should lead the change rather than be the principal obstacle to it. It is in West Bengal's interest to facilitate India - Bangladesh ties.


  10. Q. 1. Which of the following will be a suitable title for the passage? (a) Mamata to facilitate India - Bangladesh ties (b) India and Bangladesh to sign extradition agreement (c) Kolkata the hub for South East Asia (d) Better India - Bangladesh ties in West Bengal's interest

(a) Both A and R are right and R is the correct explanation for A (b) Both A and R are right but R is not the correct explanation for A (c) A is right but R is wrong (d) A is wrong but R is right
