The JaPa chairman could not meet with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as the latter was out of Delhi during the tour

Jatiya Party (JaPa) Secretary General Ruhul Amin Hawlader on Thursday said India External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had praised their party's role, both in government and as opposition, and hoped other democratic countries would follow the example.

"Sushma Swaraj said JaPa playing a role in the government despite being the opposition was a rare example. She appreciated JaPa as it came out from the traditional concept that the opposition cannot play a role in the government," he said, as quoted by UNB.

Hawlader made the remarks while speaking at a press conference on JaPa Chairman HM Ershad's four-day India tour, held at the JaPa Chairman's Banani office.

Ershad, along with Ruhul Amin Hawlader, presidium members Zia Uddin Ahmed Bablu, Sunil Shuvo Roy, and Khaled Akhter, returned home from New Delhi on Wednesday.

During the tour, Hawlader said Ershad held meetings with the Indian external and home ministers, as well as with Indian National Security Adviser Ajit Doval.

He added that the JaPa chairman could not meet with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as the latter was out of Delhi during the tour.

However, Hawlader said Sushma Swaraj met with Ershad on behalf of Modi.

He said the Indian government invited Ershad to go to Delhi once more at a convenient time.

During the meetings with the three Indian leaders, the JaPa secretary general said they discussed common issues.

He said the Indian leaders wanted to strengthen India's current good relationship with Bangladesh further.

"India expects the democratic atmosphere to stay intact in Bangladesh. They assured us that India would always give its moral support to continue the democratic and constitutional trend of the country," Hawlader said.

He added that the Indian leaders hoped the next election would be free and fair, with the participation of all parties.
