NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Republican candidate Donald Trump on winning the US Presidential elections on Monday. He also hoped that the two countries will work together to take the bilateral relations to new heights.

"We appreciate the friendship you have articulated towards India during your campaign," Modi tweeted to Trump after he was won the elections.


The Prime Minister also stated that he was looking forward to work with him. "We look forward to working with you closely to take India-US bilateral ties to a new height," Modi tweeted.

The senior BJP leader Ram Madhav, who was reportedly closely observing the US Presidential elections, noted that the Republicans would have a strong command over both the Houses. "With both House and Senate solidly behind him packed with Republicans, Trump will have a field day for next four years in US politics," said Madhav. The BJP leader also took potshots at the media, saying there is a disconnect between what's written and the aspirations of the people.

Another senior BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramaniam Swamy hailed the victory of Trump. "Sometimes, issues stir people up. Like the Hindutva issue in 2014, similar reasons are at play in the US today,” Swamy states. He denounced the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, saying she was “compromised by Pakistan". He claimed that Trump  is committed to fighting Islamic terror.
