Modi is also one of the pioneers of democracy. We hope he will advocate as much as possible with the diplomatic norms for establishing a democratic government in Bangladesh."The BNP leader made the remarks while addressing a discussion at the Jatiya Press Club arranged by Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal, marking party founder Ziaur Rahman's 34th death anniversary.Earlier in the morning, Modi arrived here on a two-day visit to take the two neighbouring countries' special relationship to a newer height.Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina received her Indian counterpart at the VVIP Tarmac. He was presented with a bouquet.Making his party's stance clear on strengthening ties with India, Hannan Shah said, "Bangladesh is an independent country while India is a big democratic and independent country. Democracy is well established there. We hope the relations between to two countries will be cemented further."He alleged that the previous Indian Congress-led government had maintained relation with a single party and supported Awami League in the 'controversial and voter-less' election held on January 5, 2014 boycotted by BNP.Mentioning that Indian Constitution allows its government to work for strengthening the democratic system and movement of other countries, the BNP leader regretted that the Congress-led government had taken an opposite stance ignoring the hopes and aspirations of the people of Bangladesh.Hannan Shah said, Bangladesh is not getting any benefit by giving India transit. "The government had earlier said Bangladesh would be a country like Singapore if India was given transit. But no revue has so per been earned by giving India transit."Pointing at Modi, he said BNP has no objection if India uses Bangladeshi land. "But, we want India to give tax for using our roads, rivers and ports."The BNP leader criticised the ruling Awami League for its failure to resolve the water sharing problem with India through talks.
