Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi on Sunday met Bangladesh premier Sheikh Hasina, a day after she met Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Congress delegation led by Manmohan Singh and Sonia met Hasina in the National Capital.

Senior leader Anand Sharma and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were also present in the meeting that lasted around half-an-hour.

After meeting Hasina, Priyanka Gandhi tweeted, "An overdue hug from Sheikh Hasina Ji whom I have been waiting to meet again for a long time. Her strength in overcoming deep personal loss and hardship and fighting for what she believed in with bravery and perseverance is, and always will be a great inspiration for me."

Modi and Hasina on Saturday signed seven agreements and inaugurated three development partnership projects—import of bulk LPG from Bangladesh to Tripura through trucks, Vivekananda Bhaban (students’ hostel) at Ramakrishna Mission, Dhaka, and the Bangladesh-India Professional Skill Development Institute (BIPSDI) at the Institution of Diploma Engineers Bangladesh (IDEB), Khulna.

Hasina, who is on a four-day visit to India, will leave Delhi for Bangladesh on Sunday evening. — Agencies
