Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali has conveyed the heartiest congratulations on the consecutive second victory of the ruling Trinamool Congress in the recently held West Bengal Bidhan Sabha elections.

 

“This is an apt recognition of your pro-poor and pro-development policies, and your dedication for betterment of the people of West Bengal,” he said in a message to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday.

 

As the relationship expands in depth and dimension, the Foreign Minister said, “We’re confident that during your upcoming term, we would be able to further strengthen our relations.”

 

Ali, in his message on behalf of the government and people of Bangladesh, said the relations between Bangladesh and India have reached a new height during the tenure of the respective governments in Bangladesh and India, UNB reports.

 

“The strong historical ties; commonalities of language, culture and values; and warmth between the peoples of Bangladesh and West Bengal are important facilitators in this regard,” he said.

 

Wishing Mamata a greater success, the Foreign Minister also extended her an invitation to visit Bangladesh at a convenient time.
