Narendra Modi likely to visit Brazil in July http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/nare ... 62540.html … pic.twitter.com/LMQ2uanE5u
It is now almost certain that Narendra Modi's first overseas photo-opportunity will be with President Vladimir Putin and President Xi Jinping of China.

As Prime Minister, Modi is to attend the sixth BRICS summit to be held in Brazil in July 2014 where Putin and Xi Jinping will join the host Brazilian President Dilma Roussef and South African President Jacob Zuma.

"It will be the Prime Minister-designate's first overseas multilateral visit," a senior MEA official said, not ruling out the possibility of it being preceded by other bilateral visits.

...
"Modi starting off with a BRICS Summit will seen a great signal that India believes in a "multipolar world order", " says G Parthasarathy, former Indian High Commissioner to Islamabad. "This could be followed up by bilateral visits to Japan, Vietnam and South Korea."

...
"There is no need to hurry a visit to Washington as it would seem undignified given how they have behaved," Parthasarathy says adding Modi will have ample opportunity to meet Obama during the East Asian and G 20 Summits both to be held in November this year.

JDU minus Nikuamma can continue alliance with BJP and deliver on their promise of good governance else go for a new Mandate.

And he has no Majority. Come to think of it there is No Alternative to dissolving the assembly and obtaining fresh mandate. This (im)moral posturing from Nikuaama is sickening. He forgets that he won the last Assembly election on coalition platform with BJP and now BJP has got thumping majority and he is all but decimated along with congis and RJD. In fact he has no morals at all.

Narendra Modi, on Twitter, Thanks World Leaders, No Mention of US

Narendra Modi, to be India's next prime minister, has taken to Twitter to thank fellow leaders in Japan, Russia, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Australia for their good wishes.

But one man still waiting for a reply is US Secretary of State John Kerry.


While Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has had two mentions and Russian President Vladimir Putin received warm words on Monday, Mr Modi has conspicuously made no reference at all to the leaders of the world's superpower.

Washington, along with European powers, boycotted the 63-year-old for a decade and denied him a visa over religious violence in Gujarat in 2002 while he was the state's chief minister.

About 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, were killed. Mr Modi has never been found guilty of wrongdoing over the riots, and has denied any wrongdoing.

Mr Kerry tweeted congratulations to Modi on Friday after a landslide win for his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party, saying he looked forward to working with him and "growing shared prosperity/security".

Britain had also boycotted Modi, but British Prime Minister David Cameron sent a message of congratulations on Friday which was acknowledged by Mr Modi the day afterwards. "Hoping to further strengthen India-UK relations," he wrote.

President Barack Obama telephoned Modi but has yet to comment in person. He had warm words for his predecessor on Saturday, however.

As Dr Manmohan Singh left office after 10 years in power, Obama called to tell him that that there were "very few people in public life that I have admired or appreciated more".

Mr Modi has displayed no rancour publicly about his treatment by Washington, telling an interviewer earlier this month that foreign relations "should not and cannot be influenced by incidents related to individuals".

But analysts are looking closely at how the world's biggest democracies can work together with Mr Modi at the helm and following a highly damaging row over the arrest of an Indian diplomat in New York in December.

Here is what I can see:

1) US called Modi - Modi didn't acknowledge, English MSM did
2) The rest of the world called Modi - Modi acknowledged, English MSM didn't

So, who are the "sources" for the English MSM? Are they different from the "sources" that speculate on the potential cabinet structure?

Folks - does anyone know where Assembly segment level data of present LS polls can be found? I checked both ECI site and Indiavotes site, but neither has Assembly level data yet (at least, I didn't find it). So, link to Assembly level data of polls, if it can be found, would be greatly appreciated.

New Delhi: It isn't just allies who are lining up in Delhi to meet Narendra Modi, who will take over soon as India's next prime minister.

Today, Jagan Mohan Reddy, the regional powerhouse from Andhra Pradesh, accompanied by his MPs, travelled to Delhi for an appointment with Mr Modi.

Officially, they say the agenda is to discuss what sort of financial assistance will be extended to Andhra Pradesh by the new government. But privately, sources close to Jagan Mohan say that he also wants a reassurance that Mr Modi's ally, Chandrababu Naidu, who will take over as the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, will not persecute him with corruption cases.

A recent post on the Facebook page of Mr Naidu's Telugu Desam Party or TDP, says "It is beyond doubt that he (Jagan Mohan) is going back to jail in 45 days." On Sunday, Mr Naidu said, "The law must take its own course... I don't have a grudge against anybody."


And CBN added to this by saying, even if I let these things go, Modi is not going to leave corrupt/criminal leaders alone. They will be sent to jail in 1 yr.
