Bhubneshwar (Odisha) [India], Nov. 10 (ANI): Biju Janata Dal (BJD) Member of Parliament Baijayant 'Jay' Panda has congratulated U.S. president elect Donald Trump and said he is looking forward to India and America cooperating on ways and means to counter cross-border terrorism.

Panda told ANI, "President Trump has said he will take out-of-the-box approaches on many things, certainly on an issue like terrorism, which India has been affected by very seriously. He has been talking very bluntly and I look forward to the ways and means of co-operating even more with America then we already do to crack down especially on the cross-border terrorism that we face from our neighborhood."

"India will be prepared to work with him for mutual benefit, for India's benefit, for America's benefit and for the benefit of the world," he added.

Donald Trump was elected as the 45th president of the United States on Wednesday.

Trump's surprising performance at the polls ended Hillary Clinton's quest to make history as the first female president of the United States.

Trump, a 70-year-old celebrity businessman who had never before run for office, is poised to become the oldest U.S. President ever elected to a first term, reports the Washington Post. (ANI)
