Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina and opposition BNP chief Khaleda Zia have congratulated Modi. Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa telephoned Modi to wish him and extended an invitation to the BJP's prime ministerial nominee to visit the island-nation. "I am delighted to see a great friend of Bangladesh leading an extremely friendly country, India, in the coming days," Hasina said in her letter to Modi, BJP's prime ministerial candidate. "I hope that you would find my country your second home and first destination for your official visit abroad," she said.
Hasina said "the decisive verdict given by the people of your great country is a strong testimony to your dynamic, inspiring and visionary leadership qualities and manifestation of the trust and confidence reposed in you by the people of the largest democracy in the world."
