India-B'desh ties will scale newer heights, says Sheikh Hasina in a message to PM Modi

India-B'desh ties will scale newer heights, says Sheikh Hasina in a message to PM Modi

NEW DELHI, May 23 (UNI) Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his party’s sweeping victory in the Lok Sabha elections, expressing hope that India-Bangladesh relations will be further consolidated and scale newer heights.



In a congratulatory message to Mr Modi on Thursday, she said: “On behalf of the Government and the people of Bangladesh and on my own behalf, I extend my heartiest congratulations to you on the resounding victory of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) under your dynamic leadership in the 17th Lok Sabha elections in India. This emphatic verdict is a reflection of the trust and confidence reposed on you by the people of the world’s largest democracy.



Sheikh Hasina said: “Bangladesh attaches highest importance to its multi-faceted relations with India which is driven by genuine goodwill, mutual trust and respect. India’s critical role in support of Bangladesh’s War of Independence under the leadership of the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1971 was a watershed moment in the relations.



“I strongly believe that with the renewed mandate given to both of us by our respective peoples, Bangladesh-India ties, which have already been termed as a role model of good neighbourliness, will be further consolidated and our relations will scale newer heights,” Sheikh Hasina said in the message.



She further said: “I wish peace, happiness and prosperity for the people of India and my best wishes for your good health, continued success and a long life. I look forward to welcoming Your Excellency in Bangladesh at your convenience.”
