NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday congratulated Srettha Thavisin as he is elected as the Prime Minister of Thailand.

In a post on X, Modi said: "Heartiest congratulations @Thavisin on your election as the Prime Minister of Thailand. I look forward to working closely with you for taking India-Thailand bilateral relations to a higher level.”

Srettha, a real estate mogul who entered the Thai political landscape mere months ago under the Pheu Thai's mantle, required 375 votes to become premier and set up Bangkok's next government.
