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

    Will work closely with next Indian govt, US envoy Powell tells Modi

    Ending a nine-year boycott, US ambassador Nancy Powell on Thursday met Narendra Modi and said her country looks forward to working closely with the government that will be formed after the Lok Sabha

    href='http://www.hindustantimes.com/specials/coverage/myIndia-myVote/index.aspx'>elections. The statement was an indication that the US has no reservations in doing business with the Gujarat chief minister if he becomes the country’s next Prime Minister.

    “US-India partnership is important and strategic, and that the United States looks forward to working closely with the government that the Indian people choose in the upcoming elections,” a statement quoting the envoy said after the nearly one-hour meeting in Gandhinagar.

    Official sources said Powell praised the “good model” of governance in Gujarat which she felt could be taken to other parts of the world.

    The sources said the US envoy told Modi that there was an "excellent investment climate" in Gujarat where she was coming after a gap of 20 years. Powell was quoted as saying that she was highly impressed with the progress the state had made over the past two decades.

    The sources said Modi raised the issue of Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade and was assured by her that the US was committed to speedy resolution of the matter.

    "This meeting was part of the US mission's outreach to senior leaders of India's major political parties in advance of the upcoming national elections," the US statement said.

    "Her discussions focus on the importance of the US-India relationship, regional security issues, human rights, and American trade and investment in India," it said, adding, "The US and India are moving forward with a strategic partnership that is broad and deep."

    Decks were cleared for an end to the boycott imposed in the aftermath of the 2002 post-Godhra riots when, in a sudden u-turn, the US ambassador sought an appointment with the Gujarat CM which was granted.

    The US had revoked Modi's visa in 2005 under a domestic law over "serious violations of religious freedom".

    Describing the meeting as warm and cordial, the sources said all facets of the Indo-US relations as also global issues came up for discussion during which Powell briefed Modi on G8, G20, WTO, counter-terrorism and security cooperation.

    Modi raised the issue of the need for terrorists being brought to justice, the sources said.

    In her talks with Modi, Powell also referred to Indo-US cooperation in Afghanistan including training of women in that country.

    She made a special mention of the Amul model of dairy development and animal husbandry in Gujarat and felt cooperation in this area could be extended to Afghanistan.

    It was for the first time in 13 years that an ambassador-level officer travelled to the city to meet Modi, who greeted the delegation at his residence with flowers and warm handshake.

    Hindustan Times broke the story on Febraury 10 that Powell had asked for and received permission from South Block to meet the Gujarat chief minister and was scheduled to meet him this week.

    The external affairs ministry had briefed Modi on Indo-US relations prior to his meeting with Powell, the sources said. The US has insisted that its policy on granting a visa to Modi has not changed.

    A consular-level officer of the US consulate in Mumbai had met Modi after his visa was revoked, but later, as his stature grew in Indian politics, the chief minister had stopped giving time to junior officials.

    Powell's meeting with the BJP leader is widely being seen as acknowledgement of Modi's growing political clout. Washington has also made it clear that it was not taking any position on the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

    Reiterating that the US does not take positions in elections of any country, state department spokesperson Jen Psaki said Powell's meeting with Modi was not a reflection of the same.

    “We don't take positions. So no, it wouldn't be a reflection of that. It is just a reflection, as I have stated a few times, of us reaching out to a range of individuals from different backgrounds, different political affiliations, which we do in countries around the world," she had said.

    In the last few years, several of America's European allies have met Modi.

    Though Thursday’s was the biggest US engagement with Modi in years, business delegations from the country had always been welcomed by the Gujarat administration and they participated in events such as the 'Vibrant Gujarat' summit.

    Despite the visa ban, Modi has also reached out to the Indian diaspora in the US through video-conference.

    The NaMo number is the score that keeps track of how many NaMo Supporters a Volunteer has persuaded to SMS their Voter-IDs to 7820078200.

    [​IMG]

    This includes a count of theVoterID number of the Volunteer as well as that of friends and family whom the Volunteer has convinced to pledge support Narendra Modi.

    NaMoNumber is critical for the success of Mission272+ it helps register nationally support for NaMo as our next PM. Using the NaMoNumber Volunteers can ensure that they and their friends/family members are registered to vote with a confirmaiton of their Voter-IDs being listed in the electoral rolls (A VoterID must be listed in the electoral rolls to vote.) NaMoNumber will also help Volunteers in making sure polling booth details are made known to them and family members as we get closer to the election. NaMoNumber will be the gateway for Volunteers to obtain contact information of a local karyakarta in case any assistance is needed for voting. NaMoNumber SMS updates will keep Volunteers updated of BJP candidate for their Constituency and related campaign updates.

    Mission272+ Volunteers can also give inputs for the local manifesto for the Parliamentary Constituency and provide inputs for Candidate selection (in selected constituencies) through the India272+ Volunteering Platform by participating in the NaMoNumber Initiative. The most active Volunteers will get an opportunity to meet with Shri Narendra Modi.

    India272+ as a Platform has grown to engage Lakhs of Volunteers through its OnGround Initiatives, Mere SapnoKaBharat Campaign, Dialogues with BJP Leaders and Volunteer Leaders and Forums to provide Inputs. Today India272+ is the primary Campaign Destination for all Mission 272+ Volunteers to keep abreast of the latest on the Campaign and to contribute to the Campaign through both Online and On-ground activities. With the launch of NaMoNumber, Mission272+ is now a step closer to reality with a laser sharp focus on every one of the 545 Lok Sabha seats. NaMoNumber will be the foundation for Mission272+ to Win every Booth.

    Modi in Arunachal: China should shed expansionist mindset

    PASIGHAT, ARUNACHAL PRADESH: Wading into a foreign policy issue for the first time, Narendra Modi on Saturday asked China to shed its "expansionist mindset", making it clear that no power on earth can snatch Arunachal Pradesh from India.

    "China should shed its expansionist policy and forge bilateral ties with India for peace, progress and prosperity of both the nations," the BJP's prime ministerial candidate said addressing a meeting here in his current election campaign.

    "Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India and will always remain so. No power can snatch it from us. People of Arunachal Pradesh didn't come under pressure or fear of China," he said.

    "I swear in the name of this soil that I will never allow the state to disappear...breakdown and to bow down," Modi said to a thunderous applause from people gathered near the mighty Siang River.

    He said China should shed its expansionist mindset because the world of today does not accept it. The entire world is moving towards development, he said.

    "China needs to change its stand. China should shed its expansionist mindset and adopt the plank of development. Focus is on the development all over the world," the Gujarat Chief Minister said.

    Lauding the patriotic nature of the people, Modi said that because of the people, who were guarding the state as well as the country as sentinels, Arunachal remained an integral part of the country.

    "The people here are real patriots as they salute their counterparts with 'Jai Hind' and are zealously protecting the state's territory..... They gave a befitting reply to the advancing Chinese army during 1962 and the British and several army personnel from the state also fought with Pakistan during the Kargil war," he said.

    While directly referring to the January 29 murder of Arunachal Pradesh youth Nido Tania in Delhi, Modi cautioned the UPA government against underestimating the people of the state and added that it was the duty of the entire nation to protect the people and the state's territorial integrity.

    Karunanidhi praises Modi, says he is a 'proven administrator'

    Substantial grist was added to the political speculation mill when DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi praised BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, though party leaders said not much should be read into it.

    Tamil newspaper Dinamalar quoted 89-year-old Karunanidhi saying Modi was a "proven administrator, hard worker and my good friend".

    "My personal opinion is Narendra Modi is a good person and has taken care of the development of his state. He has proved his capabilities as an administrator in Gujarat where the people have elected him repeatedly," Karunanidhi told the newspaper.

    The remarks, which came after the DMK has distanced itself from the Congress, created a buzz at a time when political parties are entering into alliances ahead of the general elections due in May.

    A DMK spokesperson did not find anything unusual in his leader's utterances, saying the party was opposed to the BJP on political issues only. However, some reports suggest the two parties are exploring the possibility of an alliance.

    The DMK and BJP were in a coalition the Centre once, which has raised Congress' worries.


    But a senior DMK leader said on the condition of anonymity that "the party was strong enough to win elections on our own with our present allies".

    "It is a fact that national parties are scouting for allies among regional political formations and not the other way round," he said.

    Asked how his party would position itself post elections, Karunanidhi said, "I cannot speculate and tell what would be the situation after the Lok Sabha election."
