India Election: Obama Promises to Cooperate with Narendra Modi

Narendra Modi’s landslide victory in the polls has led to some pretty huge personalities pledging allegiance to his government. Even President Obama is not averse to a little friendly overtures made in the direction of the man with Gujarat as his home turf. 

Modi has virtually transformed the outward look of Gujarat. The technological innovation and IT hub has seen a miraculous growth spurt under Modi’s leadership. 

That of course was his launch pad to becoming a leader of the nation. And despite his bad record in matters of ethnic relations (the Gujarat genocide of Muslims many years ago) he is the BJP’s chosen man. 

The newspapers announced in bold headlines: “Enter Modi”. No doubt he has conquered. The BJP trumped Congress by gathering enough votes via its populist and traditionalist core values. 

It was the biggest election on a global level. India has chosen a leader. And India has the world’s biggest middle class and is the only democracy in the region (like Israel). 

Narendra Modi commented on his winning streak by saying that it ought to be a time of healing instead of conflict. "This is the right time to look ahead. It is a time to connect with each other," Modi said in a post-election blog.

"Let us place people over politics, hope over despair, healing over hurting, inclusion over exclusion and development over divisiveness," added Modi, who is the son of a tea-stall owner.

Obama meanwhile extended a hand of friendship to Modi by saying that India had shown the world that it was on the side of liberty, multiculturalism and democratic principles. 

He also spoke of how the US would work in close alliance with India’s new government in order to chart a future course in geopolitics in the troubled region that was South East Asia. 

"We look forward to the formation of a new government once election results are announced and to working closely with India's next administration to make the coming years equally transformative," said Obama.

The fact, that for a long time the US and Europe refused to acknowledge Modi’s leadership in Gujarat, is a stumbling stone. His refusal to apologize for the mass killing of Muslims in Gujarat in 2002 has left a splotch on his otherwise clean human rights record.
