The US continued to maintain silence on granting visa to BJP PM candidate Narendra Modi, whose party-led NDA is projected to form the next government in India, according to exit polls. “We don’t speak on visa acceptances, applications, etc. So, I don’t have anything for you on that,” State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki said on Monday.
In 2005, the US State Department had revoked the visa that Modi had for travelling to the US on the ground of alleged human rights violations during the 2002 Gujarat riots.
The US has repeatedly said there is no change in its long-standing visa policy relating to Modi but he is free to apply for a visa and await a review like any other applicant.
“We look forward to working with the leaders chosen by the Indian people to advance this important partnership,” Psaki said on Tuesday.
