Narendra Modi will get visas for Chaalo Gujarat???

I hear that the AIANA (Association of Indian American of North America) will use their best influence to convincePresident George W Bush to grant US visa to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi enabling him to attend a Gujarati conference in New Jersey.

The three-day ‘Chaalo Gujarat’conference will be held at Edison, New Jersey from September 1-3 and this time, our CM will take no risk. Union Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel, The big brothers -Anil-Mukesh Ambani, Minister Shankersinh Vaghela, Irfan Pathan, Kiran More are among the few dignitaries to visit the conference.

We all know, Modi was denied visa in 2005 by the US following the 2002 riots. This time, unless the US consulate gives a sure green signal, Narendrabhai will not apply. It can hurt his reputation and sure it will - not only his but leave scars and stains on the reputation of Gujarat too. What do the big shots of US think? Video conferencing or live telecasting is a way to go but denying visa to the CM is an insult. Show a Minister who is clean chit? Why lay hurdles in Gujarat progress? After all, the CM brings Gujarat in the world map and is the best State in India winning awards for excellent administration and Sonia Gandhi herself had given the Award earlier too.

Well, I think Narendra Modi's influence is far and wide and this time, all cheers...he's gonna get the Visas for sure and if not, Where there's a will, there's a way - Gujarat CM can reach people and win hearts - all coz he's got words and words are all he has to take hearts away - Indeed, Narendra Modi is a great Orator (only he spill beans with harsh words sometimes!)
