This was de­cided when Prime Min­is­terNaren­draModi­had­vis­ited Myan­mar last week. Hasina told Swaraj that her gov­ern­ment has des­ig­nated land for makeshift shel­ters of the Ro­hingyas, but made it clear that if they stayed for too long, it would be­come a big chal­lenge for Bangladesh. In­dian High Com­mis­sioner to Bangladesh Harsh Vard­han Shringla handed over 53 tonnes of re­lief ma­te­rial for the Ro­hingya refugees to the Bangladesh au­thor­i­ties on Thurs­day. Around 400,000 Ro­hingyas are sus­pected to have en­tered Bangladesh since Au­gust last week af­ter the ter­ro­rat­tack­onMyan­marArmy­byter­ror­ists in the Ro­hingya ranks. Hasina may raise the Ro­hingya is­sue and dif fi­cul­ties faced by Bangladesh at the UN Gen­eral Assem­bly in New York.
