John Kerry praises Narendra Modi: Congress says now US is bound to do so; BJP says US rectifying its past mistake
US Secretary of State John Kerry will be visiting India from today. But well before starting off his official visit he praised the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's style of governance. These praiseworthy words have become very significant in the sense that it was the same US who had refused visa to the Indian PM in the wake of 2002 Gujarat riots.

Praising Narendra Modi's governance style, John Kerry, just before his departure from the US to India said that Indian PM's developmental plan reflected in his poll slogan of "Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas" is a great vision. Kerry said that that the US is ready to be partner with the new Indian government in its endeavour.

"The new Indian government's plan, 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas', together with all, development for all - that's a concept, a vision that we want to support. We believe it's a great vision, and our private sector is eager to be a catalyst in India's economic revitalisation," said John Kerry, as reported by Economics Times.

The Congress while downplaying the US' praise of PM Modi said the US was bound to do so in the wake of change in regime in India.

"As Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister today, and if any country wants to have good relationship with India, definitely they are bound to praise Prime Minister of the country. It is not very unusual."

Sudhanshu Mittal, a BJP spokesperson, said the US has now realized its mistake and are trying to rectify it.

"They have change their hearts obviously, because they have now realized their mistake. Under influence of a particular lobby, they compromised with truth and now the public mandate has exhibited the truth."
