Punjab BJP today termed the resignation of US Ambassador Nancy Powell as a strong example of the Modi wave in India.
"It was the same US who did not take back case against Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade, but now insisted for resignation of its Ambassador to India as she had underestimated swelling power of Narendra Modi and BJP in India," Kamal Sharma, Punjab BJP President, said in a statement.
He claimed that Powell's proximity with the UPA government led her to underestimate Modi's wave.
She had sent a very "cold report" about Modi but then the US realised that Powell's report did not match reality.
"Then first it decided to sent Powell to meet Modi in Gujarat. Even after that US felt that this was not sufficient then it asked her to resign," said Sharma.
When asked about issue of 'Operation Blue Star' being raised by Congress candidate Captain Amrinder Singh, Sharma said "Arun Jaitley and our party has already said that he (Captain) is part of that party which had planned and executed the operation, so it's better to ask Sonia or Rahul about it."
Modi's first lesson to the US.
