Bangladesh

In a congratulatory message to Modi, Prime Minister Hasina 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.” She said that Bangladesh attaches the highest importance to its multi-faceted relations with India which is driven by genuine goodwill, mutual trust and respect.

Japan

Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo Thursday congratulated his counterpart Narendra Modi for his resounding electoral victory in the general elections and vowed towards further strengthening the India-Japan special strategic ties.

“Prime Minister of Japan, Abe Shinzo called Prime Minister Narendra Modi and congratulated him for the resounding victory of his party in the 2019 General Elections,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement. Modi thanked Shinzo for his wishes, it said.

During the conversation, both leaders noted the advances made in the bilateral relationship in the last five years and reiterated their commitment towards further strengthening the India-Japan Special Strategic and Global Partnership to achieve their shared vision of peace, progress and prosperity, the statement added.

The BJP is all set to return to power as the partial vote count released by the Election Commission showed that it was leading in 296 of the 542 Lok Sabha seats that went to polls in seven phases, demolishing the combined opposition including the Congress that is stuck with 51 seats. The NDA is nearing the 350 marks. The non-NDA, non-UPA parties have scored more than the UPA. Some of these MPs who are not a part of the mahagathbandhan may, in due course, switch to the NDA camp, making the next government even more powerful.
