New York, May 24

The massive election victory of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his BJP is a reflection of the emergence of ‘New India’ and would help boost the India-US alliance, Indian-Americans and bi-partisan organisations said.

Modi’s first term as Prime Minister has set a high bar of leadership and governance, President of The American India Public Affairs Committee Jagdish Sewhani said.

“By re-electing the BJP and the NDA, the people of India have endorsed the good governance of Prime Minister Modi, his developmental policy based on ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ and his strong national security policy which has zero tolerance to terrorism,” he said in a statement.

He said the re-election of the Indian leader with a strong mandate is a reflection of the emergence of ‘New India’.  

India had become a bright spot of global economy and a world power that could no longer be ignored, he said.

“In the next five years Prime Minister Narendra Modi would fast-track India’s development,” he said.

Under Modi, India would soon be among the world’s most powerful countries and top three global economies, USINPAC, a bi-partisan organisation that is the voice of over 3.2 million Indian-Americans, said in a statement. 

“He hit it out of the park,” Sanjay Puri, Chairman of USINPAC, said, adding, “This time, we call upon the world to take note of the shift taking place under Modi’s leadership. Modi is a transformative, once-in-a-lifetime leader, with clear views about security, the economy, and foreign policy. India is strong. India won’t be sidelined.”

During Modi’s second term as Prime Minister, Puri said USINPAC would be advocating in the US Congress for greater attention to be placed on the US-India relationship.

“It is time to rethink US-India engagement and to build a stronger alliance between our nations,” he said.

“We will be working to elevate the relationship to see that it becomes a pinnacle and priority of US foreign policy,” he said.

The Overseas Friends of BJP (OFBJP)-USA congratulated Modi, party president Amit Shah, BJP leaders and millions of BJP volunteers who toiled hard for this stupendous victory.

The group said the Indian voters had stamped their approval for continuing the all-round development with pro-poor, pro-farmer, and pro-business policies of the Modi government. PTI
