During the talks, Modi said that "Hasina's victory was the reflection of Bangladesh's stunning development under her dynamic leadership", according to Karim.

"Prime Minister Modi assured her of India's continued support to Bangladesh's developmental strides," the press secretary added.

According to the EC, Hasina's alliance has won the parliamentary vote with a thumping majority.
