Washington: As the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party won a decisive mandate in the Lok Sabha elections, an influential American lawmaker on Friday said that the US failed to develop a strong friendship and comprehensive partnership with him when it mattered the most.

“The US-India partnership should be, could be, one of the most defining of the 21st century. But, I am disappointed that the US failed to develop a strong friendship and comprehensive partnership with Narendra Modi when it mattered most,” Congressman Eni Faleomavaega said.

“US-India relations matter strategically, politically, and economically. Consequently, the US should have been a fair and honest broker about human rights,” said Faleomavaega, who is a ranking member of the House of Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific.

Paying tribute to Modi for his clarion call for change, to save the nation from ruin, Faleomavaega applauded his leadership. PTI
