Bangladesh like second home to Dr Lotay Tshering, says his office
Bhutan’s Prime Minister Dr Lotay Tshering and his delegation will be on a 21-day compulsory quarantine upon their return home from Bangladesh on Wednesday.
The prime minister of Bhutan arrived in Dhaka on Tuesday to join the celebration of the centennial birth anniversary of Bangabandhu Shiekh Mujibur Rahman and the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence.
"Lyonchhen (the prime minister in Bhutanese language) and delegation will return on March 25 and undergo 21 days of mandatory quarantine," says a post on the verified Facebook page of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), Bhutan.
"I will carry with me the blessings and prayers of His Majesty and the people of Bhutan," Dr Tshering was quoted as saying.
"It's back to the land that is almost his second home, where he embraced his dream of becoming a doctor and learned the traits of saving lives," states another post after his arrival.
"But this time, he is an emissary carrying special prayers of His Majesty The King and love of the people of Bhutan," the post says.
The Bhutanese prime minister completed his MBBS degree at the Mymensingh Medical College.
