It appears that the arrival of Obama as the new US president will augur well for the Gujarat CM Narendra Mody.
The news is that the only Indian Obama included into his core group is Sonal Sha. She is the daughter of a Gujarati business man who settled in US. She is also actively playing a role in funding VHP academic wing EKALAVYA TRUST.
Though Mody has been trying to visit US since 2005 the American government is refusing to allow him for his role in Gujarat genocide in the post-Godhra communal clashes. Though Gujarati community pressurized Bush to grant visa to Modi it didn’t yield much results.
Now Sonal making it into Obama core team and her father being one of the staunch supporters of VHP, we can expect Mody to get permission from US to honor the Gujarati community invitation.
