Bangladesh Nationalist Party this time is very much cautious about giving any formal reaction to BJP’s victory in the 17th Lok Sabha elections in India, party sources said.

After the victory of BJP, BNP leaders did not immediately express their reaction as they were very much cautious about expressing greetings to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party for victory in the Indian general elections.

Talking to the daily sun, some leaders of BNP said the party earlier had thought that if BJP comes to power, then it would extend support to BNP’s demand for election under an election-time non-party government in Bangladesh but the BJP government did not do it in its tenure.
