"The historic relationship between our two parties dates back decades, she said."
Dhaka, May 16 - Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Friday congratulated BJP president Rajnath Singh and the party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for the party's landslide victory in the Indian general elections.

In a letter to the BJP president, she also invited him to visit Bangladesh.

On behalf of Bangladesh Awami League (BNP) and my own behalf, it gives me great pleasure in heartily congratulating you and the members of your party on your landslide victory, Hasina said.

The magnitude of victory is clearly reflective of the charismatic leadership quality of yours and the prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, your top office bearers and election campaign strategists and managers, as well as the huge degree of trust and confidence that the people of India have chosen to repose in your party and in your leadership, the statement said.

Her statement also praised Atal Bihari Vajpayee for his visionary leadership.

The historic relationship between our two parties dates back decades, she said.

The people of Bangladesh were thankful for the unprecedented degree of support and all-round assistance extended by the people of India to us during our Liberation War, she added.
