EAM Sushma Swaraj on a 2-day visit to Bangladesh
The announcement of the line of credit was made during the visit of Prime Minister Hasina to India in April.
"On behalf of the BNP, several issues related to our politics and elections scheduled for next year were highlighted during the meeting", Alamgir said.
This is Sushma's second visit to Bangladesh as external affairs minister of India, the first being her first stand-alone overseas visit since assuming office in 2014.
Swaraj, who is on two-day visit, will also attend the fourth Bangladesh-India Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) meeting, the Dhaka Tribune reported.
Almost 6,00,000 minority Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since late August to escape violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state where the Myanmarese army has launched a crackdown against militants.

Responding to the offer, Hardik said: "Although I believe we must unite against the BJP, this is not a BJP-Congress election".
She said that the only long term solution to the situation in Rakhine State is rapid socio-economic and infrastructure development that would have a positive impact on all the communities living in the State. The development is also seen as India's attempt to counter increasing Chinese influence in Bangladesh, where Beijing is trying to make inroads in infrastructure ventures.
She is "expected to meet the Bangladeshi leadership and also interact with the representatives of leading Bangladeshi think-tanks, chambers of commerce and industry and cultural organisations", an Indian High Commission statement said.
Before meeting the Bangladesh Prime Minister, Swaraj co-chaired the JCC meeting with Bangladesh Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali, where both leaders reviewed various aspects of bilateral relations.
India has extended three lines of credit amounting to Dollars 8 billion to Bangladesh so far.
The External Affairs Minister further emphasised that India's relations with Bangladesh are based on fraternal ties and are reflective of an all-encompassing partnership based on sovereignty and understanding.
