BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has discussed the deals signed with India during Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's visit at a meeting with party policymakers.

The party did not officially say anything about the meeting at Khaleda's office in Gulshan on Monday night.
But several leaders said the party would 'soon' officially react to the visit and the deals signed.
BNP Standing Committee members Khandker Mosharraf Hossain, Moudud Ahmed, Jamiruddin Sircar, Mahbubur Rahman, Mirza Abbas, Gayeshwar Chandra Roy, Abdul Moyeen Khan, Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury and Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir were present.
The BNP held the meeting hours after the prime minister arrived in Dhaka from New Delhi, ending the four-day state visit.
The two countries signed 22 agreements and memoranda of understanding, including some related to defence cooperation, during the visit.
Khaleda earlier said the Awami League government signed the defence deals with an aim to remain in power for five more years.
In reaction to her comments, Hasina termed the critics of the deals 'stupid'.
