Gandhi lauded Hasina's zero-tolerance policy toward terrorism and told her that such menaces must be dealt with an iron fist, senior sources said.

Mamata's opposition to water share appears to be the biggest stumbling block to reaching an agreement on the Teesta River. Teesta waters are crucial for Bangladesh, especially in the leanest period from December to March when the water flow often temporarily comes down to less than 1,000 cusecs from 5,000 cusecs. The PM reportedly offered prayers for the prosperity and harmony of her country, and for strong bilateral ties with India.
