US-based NRIs land in India to campaign for Modi

AHMEDABAD (TIP): BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has found supporters away from India, as a group of US-based non-resident Indians (NRIs), who had raised funds for Barack Obama during the 2012 US presidential elections, have come to India to root for him. A team of 650 NRI volunteers led by Bharat Barai under his ‘Global Indians for Bharat Vikas’ association, is currently in Gujarat to boost the ‘Modi for PM’ campaign.

“Yes, I had raised funds for Barack Obama during the presidential elections and now I have come here to support Narendra Modi,” Barai, a doctor from Chicago, said. Showing his email conversations with the US president and first lady Michelle Obama, he said, “Many NRIs in America want Modi to hold India’s top post. Hence, we pledged to undertake this campaign.”
