The Prime Minsiter appreciated the “friendship” Trump campaign “articulated towards India”, Modi said, “We look forward to working with you closely to take India-US bilateral ties to a new height.”

Trump was elected America’s 45th president Tuesday, an astonishing victory for a celebrity businessman and political novice who capitalized on voters’ economic anxieties, took advantage of racial tensions and overcame a string of sexual assault allegations on his way to the White House.

          Now and on, Mr. Modiji will hv to rub Trump, teach him Yoga, frequently visit USA to give orders and get impossible favours such as NSG, Isolation of stan and so on. In the meanwhile ban Chinese goods and bring in South China sea dispute ( India is in no way concerned in this matter), and win the souls and hearts of Indian electorate.

              In order to have good relationship with TRUMP, I would like to suggest MODI our PM, should travelled immediately and touch the feet of TRUMP as big brothers. Once you do this you will be graded as good PM and all your past criminal record will wipe out. But if HINDUISM not allowed to touches the feet of other religion, that is different, Hindu culture you claimed best then you have touch the feet of TRUMP.

                  Raja boy, do not take it so emotionally. I am an American citizen, and have seen how after 9-11 Prez Bush had dismantled the dirty tricks department, it will be back in sadlle again. The three fellas, Trump, Newt and Rudy are the new helmsmen of US now. I do hope there in enough toughness and sagacity to resolve issues for Indian development.

                    Trump is the very opposite of PM Modi. Dark forces which instigated much bloodshed in Jammu and Kashmir since late 1980s, have risen again. Hope Indian subcontinent will unite to ward off external machinations. Mahatma hi strived to foster Hindu Muslim unity to win against colonials, the same lesson is necessary today.

                          Reminds us of Modi's win over Sonia in 2014. Youth backed both Modi and Trump to victory. Both say "sabke sath, sabka vikas"
