Bhutan Times - - Home -

Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay, Ly­onpo Norbu Wangchuk and del­e­ga­tion paid a cour­tesy call on H.E. Ke­shari Nath Tri­pathi, Gov­er­nor of West Ben­gal at the Raj Bha­van in Kolkata last Thurs­day. The lead­ers com­mended Bhutan and In­dia’s ex­em­plary re­la­tion­ship and bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion, which has proved to be greatly ben­e­fi­cial in pro­mot­ing eco­nomic and com­mer­cial ven­tures be­tween the two coun­tries. Ly­onch­hen ex­pressed that Bhutan at­taches high im­por­tance to its re­la­tions with West Ben­gal, an im­me­di­ate and a friendly neigh­bor­ing In­dian state. His Ex­cel­lency also said that the two sides would only ben­e­fit from col­lab­o­rat­ing in all ar­eas of mu­tual in­ter­est. To­day, Bhutan-In­dia friend­ship is looked upon as an ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple of how two na­tions de­spite their dif­fer­ences in size and pop­u­la­tion can en­joy a re­la­tion­ship that is mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial. Mean­while, the del­e­ga­tion also vis­ited Daki­nesh­war and Ka­lighat tem­ples in the city. Ly­onch­hen and the of­fi­cials of­fered prayers and paid re­spects to two of the most holy shrines of God­dess Kali in the coun­try. Later in the evening, the Prime Min­is­ter at­tended a din­ner as the Guest of Honor, hosted by the Chief Min­is­ter of West Ben­gal at the Eco-Tourism Park.
