British PM congratulates Modi for poll win

British Prime Minister David Cameron congratulated Narendra Modi Friday on leading the BJP to victory in the Indian general elections.

"Congratulations @narendramodi on victory in India's elections. Keen to work together to get the most from UK-India relationship," Cameron tweeted Friday in his official 10, Downing Street, account.

With the BJP headed for a big majority in the Lok Sabha, Modi is set to succeed Manmohan Singh as India's 14th prime minister.

British Prime Minister David Cameron May 7 said he was "looking forward" to discussing the recent European Union (EU) ban on Indian mango imports with the country's new prime minister.

Addressing British MPs in the House of Commons, Cameron said the ban was a "serious issue" as there were concerns about possible cross-contamination and it must be made sure "that is got right".
