Sheikh Hasina has also sent 300 kgs of mangoes to Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb. Bangladesh Asst High Commissioner, Agartala presented the gift to Deb on behalf of Hasina. The Haribhanga variety of mango is grown in Bangladesh's Rangpur district. The mangoes were transported through the land border via Benapole checkpoint. This comes amid growing disquiet on Bangladeshi side over halting of vaccine exports from India. It is believed that Sheikh Hasina has also sent mangoes for President Kovind.
