Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said there is nothing for Bangladesh to be worried over the India's National Register of Citizens (NRC) issue.

"They (India) repeatedly told (us) that nothing has happened to become anxious over the NRC issue and nothing will happen. Indian prime minister himself assured it. So, we don't want to embarrass (India) by questioning about this again," he said.

Quader said, "Our bilateral relationship is (now) at an excellent level. There is no dilemma in Bangladesh-India relation. So, if any problem rises, we could resolve through discussions".

Speaking about the courtesy meeting, he said discussion was held on some projects, including at those in Mainamati of Cumilla, Sarail of Brahmanbaria and a bridge over Feni River.She (Riva) requested gearing up the progress of the projects, he added.
