In order to protect our “chicken neck” would it be useful to install a pro-India puppet regime in BD? Obviously easier than outright invading and conquering the country both militarily and wrt international consequences. Or would this backfire/be impossible to do.

How about countering Chinese influence in BD?
massive media offensive at all fronts. Highlight benefits from cooperation with India etc. and highlight the pains of being allies with China. Show them images of Uighar Muslims being oppressed by Chinese etc.

What is better for India's interest?

A fully jihadi wasteland or a BD developing with our own economy?

Note- BD becoming Jihadi means we will counter infiltration seriously like we do on Pak border
Half jihadi, half developed. Thats in India’s interests.

I'm no fan of bangladesh,but title is insulting and humiliates a sovereign people.Please change it to indian national interest in bangladesh.Basic golden rule is treat others as you would want to be treated yourself.You would not consent to being puppet of a foreign power like say china or america,why should they?
Our interest in bangladesh is keep the jihadis supressed,keep china out in concert with usa,ensure border movement is controlled and regulated,transit rights on riverways to N-E and economic trade exchanges.Thats it

Well said. As much as I dislike the Islamist mentality there, let's not treat everyone like our colony. While they are technically ancestrally Indian territory, there's no point in doing the UK with these countries. Let's keep the title respectful.

A friendly regime in BD definitely helps. But given that there aren't many takers of the pro-India narrative as they are now more religion-centric than ever. After Haseena goes, their semblance of political balance and friendliness will go for a toss. Expect Islamists to come to power and turn it into another pendulum state between China and USA.

Once that happens I want India to grab & annex Chittigong and the northern part of Bangladesh if they tried to start shit with India.
