Hmm,... many reasons.
a) Mujibur Rehman and his party was secular and close to India.
But successive rulers distanced themselves in order to please the military and the fundamentalists , both of whom are under the influence of Pakistan .
In order to stay in power the present ruling party Khaleda Zia's BNP has to take support of the fundamentalists. One of the main aim of this group is to distance Bangladesh from India.
Plus add to it the porous border and series of infiltrators into Indian territory leading to skirmishes.. so this has kept the relationship in the fridge if not the freezer.

Because China gave Bangladesh better deals. At least the Bangladeshis seem to think so???

Despite political animosity, the Bangladeshi economy is a lot more integrated to China's than it is to ours, and that doesn't speak good of our post liberation concrete steps taken towards the region bilaterally, according to their need.

We can complain about "bully China" but nobodied bullied Bangladeshi economy :)

If the Chinese are able to establish closer ties w/ Bangladesh. Despite our liberation....it means our post liberation policy there was ground halt inefficient. If they can't try and integrate economically w/ Bangladesh, we can surely make a pitch in Chinese Macao or Hong Kong. Or even Myanmar.

Even in East Asia, we always seem to lose out....hmmmm. Ex: Cambodja, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar (has ancestral links w/ India more than China).

We tend to do 2 major errors on all regions, in general not just Bangladesh, which is why we lose out when faced w/ comp ...more
