Bangalore: Narendra Modi, the Gujarat chief minister has good reasons to celebrate. After UK, it is U.S. which has lifted the ban on Modi applying for visa. For U.S. the situation is more like ‘something to gain’ as it insists on the significance of Gujarat and U.S. relationship. With U.S. counting on Gujarat for future investments, it is a moment of pride for the CM.
Last week UK ended the 10 year boycott of Gujarat after the 2002 massacre in Gujarat for which Modi remarked ‘better late than never’
The 2002 Gujarat riots struck on 27 Feb 2002, when a burning train in Godhra led to the death of 59 people, including many Hindu pilgrims returning from Ayodhya. A Muslim leader was convicted for this incident which inflated leading to the death of 790 Muslims and 254 Hindus. Modi was held responsible for inadequate action taken to control the situation, and alleged for promoting it. However immediately after the riots Modi was asked to resign and he did submit his resignation to the Governor. In the following re-election Modi leading the BJP, won by 127 seats in the assembly of 182 members, he became the re-elected Chief Minister of Gujarat.
