Earlier in the day, Hasina met Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, along with other leaders of the party.
During the meeting, party sources told ANI that the Congress leaders discussed ways to further strengthen bilateral ties between the two countries.
Prime Minister Hasina is on a four-day visit to India. She is the longest-serving Prime Minister of Bangladesh and returned to power for a second term in 2009 when the Congress-led UPA government was in power. Manmohan Singh had then visited Bangladesh as Prime Minister in 2011.
