Politicos react positively on Modi's US tour
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to fly to United States, as he has received an invitation from US President Barack Obama. The invitation has been accepted by Modi, and may visit US in the last week of September this year, where he is expected to attend the UN General Assembly.

As the Chief Minister of Gujrat, Modi was denied visa to the United States, by George Bush administration after the 2002 riots. But now the US president has invited him personally, while he called him to congratulate him for registering victory in the Lok Sabha elections.

The politicos from different political parties have reacted positively on this move by the the US.

Siddharth Nath Singh, BJP leader, as reported by ANI, says that, “In the matrix of foreign affairs, for India, US plays a very important role. And we would like to strengthen the relationship with US and we feel that it will help both the countries economically and also from the security angle. Hence, this meeting, as and when it happens will play an important role and we show that both the countries are looking for better relationship. Vis-a-vis India to US and US to India.”

Whereas Shashi Tharoor, Congress leader feels that it is something very natural and was already on cards “Its a natural thing, US is one of our most important global strategic relationship. And as far as the Prime Minister of India is concerned, its quite natural that a meeting with the president of US will follow before its too long. If the prime minister goes to the General Assembly in September, he will have plenty of opportunities to meet with the world leaders, including of course the US president.”

Anupriya Patel, Apna Dal leader is hoping that this meeting will strengthen the ties between both the countries and said, “As an alliance partner, I have full faith and confidence in his leadership and I am sure that the kind of meeting that is going to take place in September between Barack Obama and Narendra Modi ji is going to be very favorable and will build up and strengthen the ties between both the nations.

Naresh Chandra, Former Indian Ambassador to US, can see the importance given to India by the US and says, “As the meeting is scheduled in September, when all the heads of government and state visit the UN general Assembly session, so the US president is very busy during those days. It gives a clear signal that, they are giving a high priority to the relationship with India and how will they further strengthen it.”
