Why a Complete Bilateral Meeting with Indian Prime Minister
Complete Bilateral Meeting between India and U.S.A.
Obama is eager to have Narendra Modi in his side. So the President of U.S.A. is interested in a complete bilateral meeting with Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi after the general assembly of United Nation. U.S.A. administration did not want Obama to deviate his concentration to another issue at the important time of common assembly in U.N. They did not want any country to have a different bilateral meeting at White House. Only with the encouragement and activity of India, these tipe of meetings were held before. The former Indian Prime Minister ,Dr Manmohan Sing made a ‘working visit’ with his own interest and eagerness to the President of U.S.A. in Washington besides the meeting of United Nation. One of the pioneers of U.S.A.- India Nuclear Deal ,Mr Manmohan Sing wanted to make the relation close with America. Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Bajpeyee made such a visit to contemporary President Bill Clinton too.
Why Barack is Eager to Have a Bilateral Meeting with Indian Prime Minister :-
But in this case the fact was different. Barack Obama showed interest in such a meeting. He was in a tensed condition.His tenure for the presidentship was likely to be elapsed soon for the second term. His promise of election manifesto to take back the American Army in November would be executed successfully from Afghanistan.He has been continually trying to extract U.S.A. from recession. The vast Indian market was to hold for benefit.
Deputy Consul General ,Debjani Khobragare had been harassed in December.The sweet relation between India and U.S.A. was broken.Delhi declared that there was a conspiracy in that event. Loksabha election came in India.Obama had no time to recover the bitter relation.Thus in his attempt to have a full bilateral meeting , he thought to turn the bitterness into sweetness. Modi aimed to increase business with China and Japan.Thus U.S.A. could not be far behind.Above all, presnt Prime Minister of India, Mr Narendra Damodardas Modi had been showing him as one of the prominent leader of south Asia .
