He said, "This will help our future generation to be properly developed through sports and the relationship between the two countries will be further improved."

Roy invited a football, cricket, badminton, and karate team from Comilla to visit Agartala, India, as soon as possible and set a tentative date of March 10 for this purpose. 

He also announced that a sports medicine clinic would be organized in Comilla under the auspices of IBSFF.

Nazmul Ahsan Farooq Roman thanked India for its support during the liberation war of Bangladesh and said that the relationship between India and Bangladesh is very deep. 

He said, "If we want to take this relationship further, we have to move forward through sports. We want to play, give our boys and girls a chance." He requested Sujit Roy to visit Comilla soon with a sports team from Agartala.

He congratulated and welcomed the Agartala delegation for taking the initiative to exchange views on sports with IBSFF and CDSA.
