Hoping to work together in the future, she stated that "We've worked together in the past ten years and will continue in the future. We will deliver proper respect to the trust that people of Bengal have shown us."
She also greeted the PM Sheikh Hasina, her sister Sheikh Rehana Siddiq and all Bangladeshis.
