"I congratulate you @AbeShinzo for your victory. Under your able leadership, will scale new heights of progress & prosperity," Modi tweeted in Japanese language.

In his response, Abe tweeted, "Thank you so much for your warm message! Abenomics will never stop advancing. Excited to continue working with you & India!"

Abe scored a big win in the snap polls with his Liberal Democratic Party and its partner Komeito Party bagging two- thirds of the seats in the 475-member Lower House of Parliament.

Modi and Abe share a close personal relationship which was reflected when the Indian leader travelled to in August.
