Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday congratulated Sheikh Hasina on the landslide victory of her Awami League-led alliance at the general elections in Bangladesh.
Singh telephoned to Hasina this morning and warmly congratulated her, Media Adviser to the Prime Minister said in a statement.
"India looked forward to working with the Government and the people of Bangladesh in the years ahead for the mutual benefit of the people of the two countries," Singh said.
Awami League-led alliance headed by Hasina, who has a good equation with Indian leadership and favours strong ties with New Delhi, won a landslide victory in the general elections held under a neutral caretaker government after nearly two years of emergency rule.
