Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Tuesday take part in the 100th birth anniversary celebrations of Bangladesh's founding father Sheikh Mujibur Rahman through video conferencing.
Due to the coronavirus crisis, the events planned for March 17 in Bangladesh will be held without any public gatherings.
Earlier, Modi was scheduled to arrive in Bangladesh to participate in the 100th birth anniversary of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

During his visit, Prime Minister Modi was expected to hold a discussion on a wide range of topics with his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina, but the visit was cancelled due to the coronavirus spread.
