Modi's achievements in Washington

This is the first instance in Indo-US relations that the two highest-ranked US leaders have had a direct interaction with India

There have been four major incidents during the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to America. First of all, my congratulations to him for giving his speech in Hindi. In Washington, he first met the key players of five of America's biggest tech companies. After disillusionment with China, India will become their shelter, it is now certain. Their arrival in India will increase the possibilities of India even overtaking China in the technical field. During this visit, Modi personally met the leaders of the 'Quad'.

This meeting was also necessary because the new threesome formed by the US, which included only Britain and Australia except India and Japan, due to which rumors of the Quad being ineffective were spreading. Every effort has been made to show its solution during this meeting of the four leaders. In the joint meeting of Quad also, emphasis was laid on its being untactical and open. The personal meeting with US President Joe Biden and the Vice-President during Modi's visit is extraordinary in itself.

This is the first instance in Indo-US relations that the two highest-ranked US leaders have had a direct interaction with India. Modi took with him the identity cards of five ‘Bidens’ born in India. When Biden himself came to India a few years ago, he had discovered the Biden families in Mumbai while Kamala Harris herself is of Indian origin. Biden emphasized Indo-American cooperation in the same way as it is given to any of his coalition countries. He also talked about following the ideals of Gandhi. Kamala Harris also attacked the pro-terrorism activities of the neighbouring country of India. On Afghanistan also, both sides adopted a two-pronged approach. Kamala Harris, who earlier used to lash out at India over the Kashmir and neighboring refugees law, did not raise these issues at all.

From India's point of view, the fourth incident that took place during this period is the speech of the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan at the UN General Assembly. His speech was almost entirely anti-India. He also raised the issue of Kashmir fiercely. But he, like Benazir Bhutto, may not have even read the 1948 UN resolution on Kashmir.

In my very first meeting with Prime Minister Benazir, I had said that in that resolution, Pakistan was instructed to first free its occupied Kashmir from its troops and karkoons. Imran also forgot that during his last visit to New York he had said that there are thousands of terrorists active in Pakistan. If he had started jihad against terrorism in Pakistan before advocating for the recognition of Taliban, then the whole world would have easily trusted his words.
