"I believe we'll be able to keep up a good relationship. Modi has his own ideas, now he has become Indian Prime Minister and I hope as a Prime Minister of India he would play his due role so that all neighbouring countries have good relations," the Daily Star quoted Hasina as saying on Wednesday.

Bangladesh parliament speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury met India's new Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday and found him "positive" on solving outstanding bilateral issues like sharing Teesta water and implementing the Land Boundary Agreement, bdnews24.com reported.

Shirin also said that Modi has invited Hasina to visit India as soon as possible. During the meeting with Shirin, Modi listed Bangladesh's success in areas like micro-finance and poverty alleviation and said South Asian nations should adopt each other's best practices.

Shirin represented Bangladesh at Narendra Modi's oath-taking ceremony on Monday and had bilateral talks with him on Tuesday.
