Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday (Sep 11) expressed the hope to have a positive response from India over different unresolved issues, including the Teesta water-sharing one, before her visit to the neighbouring country in early October.

“We’re optimistic that the unresolved issues between the two countries will be sorted out soon. We hope we’ll get positive results over the aforesaid issues before my visit to India,” she told Parliament responding to a starred question from opposition Jatiyo Party MP Mujibul Haque (Kishoreganj-3).
