NEW DELHI - Indias High Commissioner to Bangladesh Rajit Mitter has been summoned by the government in Dhaka to explain Prime Minister Manmohan Singhs remarks against Bangladeshis, reported Times of India. The Indian prime ministers office posted a transcript of the PMs meeting with editors earlier this week, where the PMO quoted him saying, we must reckon that at least 25 per cent of the population of Bangladesh swear by the Jamaat-i-Islami and they are very anti-Indian, and they are in the clutches, many times, of the ISI (of Pakistan). Singhs publicised remarks on Bangladesh have not only embarrassed India and the PM personally, but created a storm in Bangladesh. Its timing could not have been worse. Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna is expected to visit Dhaka from July 6 to 8, and sources said he can expect some tough questioning there. Krishnas visit is expected to prepare for Singhs trip to Dhaka later this year. Reports from Bangladesh said former foreign minister in the Begum Khalida Zia government, Morshed Khan, was leading the political protests against Singhs comments. He was quoted as saying, such comments from a person like Manmohan Singh is frustrating for Bangladesh. The Awami League government in Dhaka was trying to put a brave face on it, but sources said this masked a deep feeling of dejection. The regime has been very sympathetic to New Delhis concerns about the insurgents from Indias northeast operating from within Bangladesh territory and has often been attacked by domestic opponents for not holding its own in dealings with the bigger neighbour.
