In a message sent to Mukherjee's office today, Muhith said, "I have been alarmed to receive the news of your illness and surgery. I pray for your early recovery and better health while closely following your health updates."
"You have been a seasoned politician of our sub-continent. As far as Bangladesh is concerned, you have a special place in our peoples' hearts. The people of Bangladesh will always remain indebted to you for your meaningful contributions in deepening the historic ties of friendship between Bangladesh and India," he added.
