NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi on her electoral victory in the parliamentary polls.
Modi lauded the conduct of the polls as “another step in the ongoing democratic transition in Myanmar” in a tweet. “I look forward to continuing to work with you to strengthen our traditional bonds of friendship,” his tweet read.

The ruling National League for Democracy party of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Suu Kyi won a majority of seats in Parliament and claimed a resounding victory on Monday in the country’s second election since the end of strict military rule.
“We have already secured the seats needed to form a government,” said Myo Nyunt, a spokesman for the National League for Democracy.
