Why this turnaround by Uncle Sam?


Nancy Powel

It is all about a U-turn of the US government. If it genuinely believes that Narendra Modi was guilty of quasi-genocide then it should decline to have anything to do with him – even if he becomes prime minister. With the increasing graph of Modi’s popularity US seems to have taken a sudden change in its stand towards NaMo. If it does not, when the rest of the western governments rolled back their visa isolation of Modi, the US should have followed suit. Today, when the Indian economy has been elevated to a higher plane and is expected to soar more and Modi’s prospect seems bright, US ambassador Nancy Powell’s proposed meeting with Modi says a lot. The US-Modi standoff on visa boycott seems to have taken a backseat now. What a turnaround by the all-time opportunist US and why?
