    Modi should reject meeting him , telling he is still the criminal of 2002 riots and doesn't deserve VISA to USA or talk to any US citizen because US is one country which has never violated Human rights:frust:

    Modi already something along similar lines. He said he'll restore India to a place where Americans will want to come to Idnia, and not Indians going to America. That is really what gave me a relief considering how BJP stupidly supported America's BMD shield over Europe. Modi is self-reliant, and thinks like a self-reliant person. So he'l never rely on any foreign nation so i can safely support him.

    Re: US Ambassador to India to meet Narendra Modi, says US State Department

    Hope US will apply uniform standards of human rights in dealing with Narendra Modi: Salman Khurshid

    Ahead of US envoy Nancy Powell's meeting with Narendra Modi, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid today hoped America will apply with regard to the Gujarat Chief Minister the standards consistent with its policies in dealing with issues like human rights.

    Holding that the US was free to interact with Modi, Khurshid, however, said "there are lot of things that they will not and we should not put behind."

    Khurshid hoped Americans, Europeans and other countries will apply standards consistent with their policies in dealing with issues of human rights.

    He said that in the past, India was lectured by a number of countries on human rights and it would be interesting to "know what Powell tells Modi."

    "He is not the example that should be seen as an Indian.

    We are a country that believes in Gandhian way of life, compassion, service without recognition and none of these terms applies to Modi," he said.
    Meanwhile, External Affairs spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said it was normal for foreign embassies to make a request for facilitating meetings with "constitutionally-elected functionaries" of India.

    "The request was made quite sometime back and the MEA said they could proceed with the meeting with the constitutionally-elected functionary. It is a normal courtesy extended to all the heads of missions," he said.

    Asked how he saw the upcoming meeting, the spokesman said "we consider the meeting between the Ambassador of a country, which has friendly relations with India, and a constitutionally-elected functionary of a state," he said.

    Signalling an end to nine years of boycott of Modi in the aftermath of post-Godhra riots, Powell is meeting the Gujarat Chief Minister on Thursday in Gandhinagar.

    Khurshid said "as far as any other country treating him or for that matter any other political party dealing with him, everything has to be done on merit.

    "They (US) have to understand that they are dealing with particular set of circumstances, they are dealing with particular background with the person they are dealing with.

    But it's their decision. We did not persuade anyone not to give a visa and we are not going to say that you give a visa," the External Affairs Minister said.

    "There are lot of things that they will not and we should not put behind. The holocaust is not put behind and if holocaust is not put behind who are we to lecture them to say you put holocust behind?.

    "Similarly, if we find that there are certain things that still have to make accountable, then that's our decision as a country as people and they should not by any act of theirs or by any decisions of theirs undermine something which is our democratic entitlement. I am sure they would not want to undermine our democratic entitlement," Khurshid said.

    The External Affairs Minister also referred to conviction of Maya Kodnani, a former minister in Modi government, in a riot case.
    "Maya Kondani has been convicted for most horrendus slaughter that had taken place. She was a Minister in Modi's government. I only want to know if Modi or somebody in his government feels responsible for what Maya Kondani did," he said.

    this article shows that congress is not very happy about US ambassador is meeting Modi ... what does it mean by "applying uniform standards in dealing with Modi" ... did any one get it !!!

    personal issues of congress are no concern to US ... Indian court has given its decision and congress has suddenly gone illiterate and cant read the judgement

    Tere jaise gaddar kafir musalman ko partition k waqt pakistan chale jana tha..sale Mujahide....Modi belongs to the state in the vicinity of Maharastra where one of the greatest Hindu king "shiva ji" was born ...I hope he will retain the glory of shiva ji..Muslims having mindset of INDIA FIRST can reside here but those having mindset of Islam first should better leave.....Khurshid babu Gujraat se jab bhi koi laher uthi hai sare desh ne uska saath diya hai.Tab Gandhi ji ne uthai thi toh desh ko angerezo se azadi mili ab Modi ji ne uthai hai toh desh ko in gaddar khangrassiyon se azadi milegi......Jai Hind vande mataram...

    Modi sets conditions, US swallows
    Meet on third attempt
    CHARU SUDAN KASTURI
    Nancy Powell

    New Delhi, Feb. 11: The US made Narendra Modi wait for more than eight years. But in the end, it was the Gujarat chief minister who forced Washington to plead — not once, not twice, but thrice in the past three months before agreeing to terminate a diplomatic spat that began when the US denied Modi a visa in 2005.

    US ambassador to India Nancy Powell will meet Modi on Thursday in Gandhinagar, ending America’s boycott of the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate ahead of the Lok Sabha elections where he is widely viewed as a front-runner.

    But it is the US embassy here that was eventually made to sweat for the meeting by Modi after a series of tense attempts at ice-breaking that failed, Indian and American officials aware of the details of the outreach have confirmed to The Telegraph.

    Modi eventually agreed only to a meet strictly on his terms, the officials said. The location had to be Gandhinagar; the choice of subjects had to be in tune with his national role; and the US had to discomfit his rivals, the Congress-led central government, by obtaining its approval for the meeting even though Modi and Powell could have circumvented the foreign ministry nod.

    The US, left alone in its boycott of Modi for the 2002 Gujarat riots after the European Union and Britain made up with him, accepted the conditions.

    “He got what he wanted, and he got it exactly the way he wanted,” an official said. “In the end, they (the US) were chasing him.”

    Modi first snubbed the US in November, when the American embassy requested a meeting between Powell and him in New Delhi on the margins of a series of rallies he was to hold in the last week of the month leading up to state elections in the capital.

    A meeting on the sidelines of a public event would have helped Washington limit the criticism of an about-turn on its human rights concerns that a full-fledged, one-on-one meet would trigger.

    It would also eliminate the need for Powell to seek prior approval from the external affairs ministry. The foreign office, under diplomatic protocol, only expects to be consulted for pre-scheduled, one-on-one meetings between foreign diplomats and constitutional office-holders in India. The foreign ministry, officials confirmed, was not told about the attempted November meet.

    But Modi refused to meet Powell on the sidelines of any public event in New Delhi, insisting that any meeting take place in his Gandhinagar office.

    The US embassy spokesperson hinted at the November attempt at brokering a truce, but did not comment on details.

    “This (the February 13 meeting) is a part of our concerted outreach to senior political and business leaders that began in November to highlight the India-US relationship,” the spokesperson told The Telegraph.

    The second snub came in December, when US Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo from Barack Obama’s Democratic Party wanted to meet Modi along with five Republican Congressmen. Republican Congressmen had earlier too met Modi, but the presence of a Democrat was meant to signal a thaw from Obama’s party.

    But Modi turned down a meet with the delegation, citing the arrest of diplomat Devyani Khobragade in New York on charges of visa fraud.

    The Gujarat government then told the US embassy that Powell would need the foreign ministry’s approval for a meeting with Modi. The US embassy wrote to the foreign ministry in January, officials said.

    Although Modi and the Congress leadership have traded vitriolic barbs in election campaigning, the government had no reason to block the meeting, and approved it on February 7, officials said.

    When foreign diplomats meet chief ministers, talks usually revolve around investment. But Modi and Powell will talk about India-US relations, in a willing recognition by Washington that he may be Prime Minister in a few months.

    Modi’s snubs appear rooted both in the US delay in breaking the ice with him, and in a specific spat in September 2013.

    The BJP had invited Powell to attend Modi’s rally in Delhi on September 29, but the US embassy indicated that Powell would not be able to attend the event.

    Washington had begun a thaw in ties with Modi that began on November 16, 2010, when then American consul-general in Mumbai Michael Owen met him in Gandhinagar.

    But in September, 2013, the US was still contemplating whether to formally signal an end to its boycott --- a message that would need a meeting between Modi and a senior representative of the Obama administration like the American ambassador to India.

    The European Union’s top envoy in India and the ambassadors of Italy, Germany, Greece and six other European nations had already met Modi earlier in the year. And in October, British high commissioner James Bevan travelled to Gandhinagar to meet Modi, the highest diplomatic contact between the UK and the chief minister since the riots.

    An angry BJP withdrew the September invitation, leaving US officials worried that they may have burnt under-construction bridges with Modi, who had earlier that month been declared the party’s prime ministerial candidate. This Thursday, the reconstruction will start.

    Dear Yogendra Yadav: Let’s talk about Modi

    1. What is the exact relationship between Modi and Adani group? How has Adani become super rich in just 10 years?

    » By asking such a question Yogendra Yadav tries to indulge in innuendo, which has been the characteristic of the AAP. However if he had researched on Gujarat and its progress in the last decade, the answers would have been clearly visible.

    » Under Narendra Modi’s rule in Gujarat, businesses have thrived and progressed immensely. Not only Adani, almost all industrial houses have done well in Gujarat. This is due to absence of red tape and excellent infrastructure in Gujarat. These policies of the Gujarat Government have directly benefitted the common man, by increasing employment opportunities and incomes.

    » Even the PSUs which were loss making entities in Gujarat before Narendra Modi came to power, are making great profit now. Perhaps Yogendra Yadav should take lessons as to how to manage the PSUs

    » The per capita income in Gujarat has grown at the fastest rate in Gujarat in the entire country in the last decade. SMEs and MSMEs have also blossomed like never before. There are many success stories in Gujarat, which is truly the growth engine of India.

    » If he is specifically interested in only Adani, he should also know that Adani has invested in Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Goa, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Assam apart from Gujarat. In addition to it, the Group has made investment in Indonesia for coal mining project and Australia for port and coal mining projects. It’s investments in Gujarat comprise of only 35 per cent of its total investments.

    » Hence questioning ties between Adani group and the Gujarat CM is just nonsensical. Also all the exchanges between the Gujarat Government and the company are in public domain, unlike the AAP which holds closed door meetings in hotels with industrialists to make political deals.

    2. Why are the BJP and Modi silent on gas pricing scam by Congress? Why does the media not ask them questions about it?

    » This is mischievous propaganda by the AAP. BJP has been most vociferously opposing this price hike. BJP spokespersons like Prakash Javadekar had raised their objection which can be seen here. It was the Yashwant Sinha led Parliamentary Standing Committee which adopted a stand seeking a re-think on the formulation of pricing through recommendations of the Rangarajan formula and urging the UPA government to review its decision to increase prices from April 2014. Members of the BJP, the Biju Janata Dal, the Shiv Sena, the Janata Dal (United) and the Left joined hands to support adoption of the report amid opposition from Congress MPs. This news article can be read here . This news article confirms that even the Energy Minister of Gujarat Saurabh Patel had strongly opposed this move to hike prices.

    » So the question arises: Is the AAP weak on homework or just plain lying?

    » The question to be asked to Yogendra Yadav is: Why did his party not raise its voice or demand any FIR in the AgustaWestland case which directly involved Sonia Gandhi? Does their political alliance play a part, or does have more to do with Yogendra Yadav’s closeness to Congress?

    3. Where does money for NaMo campaign come from? Shouldn’t the BJP be transparent?


    » Money for Modi’s campaign is a subject which comes within the purview of the Election Commission. All political parties and election candidates have to file their expenditure figures. BJP and Modi are answerable to the Election Commission and not AAP. We hope the AAP does not see itself as being above the Election Commission.

    » While the AAP adopts a holier than thou attitude, why does not AAP comply in the probe on its funding? This news report clearly states that AAP has not replied to two notices on its funding. Yogendra Yadav should question Manish Sisodia who is accused of misusing the money meant for his NGO. Yogendra Yadav also needs to answer the nation as to why is the Ford Foundation aiding the AAP and what are the ulterior motives behind it.

    4. What is the record of Modi Government on farmer suicides, infant mortality, and quality of schooling? A model for the country?

    » Yogendra Yadav may be pleasantly surprised to know that Gujarat’s performance on education, infant mortality rate and helping farmers is indeed a model for the nation.

    » The Modi Government, with its Kanya Kelvani and Shala Praveshotsav programme in Mission Mode focused attention on primary education in the State for the first time. At the time Modi became Chief Minister, the dropout rate in primary education was as high as 20 per cent. This means that one in every five children dropped out of school at the end of class 5. In 2012-13, this has come down to 2.04 per cent.

    » This huge success in education was due to more money being spent on education especially in building infrastructure. The performance of Gujarat is far better than the National performance which can be seen below:

    • 99 per cent of schools in Gujarat have electricity vs 47 per cent nationally.

    • 82 per cent of schools in Gujarat have ramp facility Vs 53 per cent nationally.

    • 89 per cent of schools in Gujarat have boundary walls vs 58 per cent nationally.

    • 100 per cent of schools in Gujarat have girls toilets vs 72 per cent nationally.

    • 100 per cent of schools in Gujarat have drinking water vs 23 per cent nationally.

    » According to the latest figures of IMR are for 2012, released by Registrar General in 2013 IMR of Gujarat has declined by 33 per cent as compared to decline of 30 per cent for All India between 2003 and 2012. Gujarat’s IMR at 38 is lower than the All India IMR of 42 hence Gujarat’s IMR has declined from 57 in 2003 to 38 in 2012.

    » Gujarat had a rank of 10 in 15 bigger States in SRS 2005. This rank improved to 8th in 19 bigger States which have been taken up in SRS 2013. Also important to note that in Gujarat IMR reduced from 69 in 1991 to 60 in 2001, but in the next 11 years decreased from 60 to 38! Hence Gujarat has done well in reducing IMR and this indicates that growth in Gujarat has been Inclusive.

    » It is interesting to see Yogendra Yadav raise the same questions on farmer suicides which was raised by his protégé Rahul Gandhi just a couple of days back. Gujarat has an excellent track record in not being known for farmer suicides. The states of Andhra Pradesh & Maharashtra are known for farmer suicides.

    » If any party is responsible for farmer suicides, it is the Congress. Also Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, two Congress-ruled States have the highest number of suicide cases in India.

    » According to a reply given in the Lok Sabha, Andhra Pradesh recorded 7303 while Maharashtra recorded 10,264 deaths in 2010, 2011, 2012. It is ironic that Yogendra Yadav asks this question to Narendra Modi when it is the party who he was associated with previously which is responsible for most farmer deaths.

    » Gujarat has the country’s best record in BT cotton but the State has made excellent arrangements for provision of infrastructure and inputs, especially water and has been able to avoid farmer suicides.

    » It would be good if Yogendra Yadav answers what AAP Government has done in Delhi. Rapes continue unabated. Racial crimes are flourishing. In fact, AAP Ministers themselves are indulging in racism. As many as 174 people are reported to have died in Delhi due to cold in the first 23 days of AAP rule. Even the NHRC has had to step in and raise questions about it.

    5. Why does Babulal Bokharia continue in Modi’s Cabinet despite being convicted? Can we trust NaMo to end criminalisation?

    » Babubhai Bokhiria has a stay on his conviction, as this news report notes. Yogendra Yadav should respect the due process of law and then pass judgements as to who should remain in the Cabinet and who should not.

    » While on the matter of criminality of Ministers, AAP also needs to answer why Somnath Bharti continues as a Minister in spite of being indicted by the court for evidence tempering. He is also accused of being the perpetrator of a worldwide spamming and pornography racket. Surprisingly, AAP leaders who have been most vocal about anything and everything under the sun have not offered a single explanation of Bharti’s actions!
