A prominent organisation representing Indian Americans Friday congratulated Narendra Modi for leading the BJP to a "spectacular victory" in the elections.
In a statement, the US India Political Action Committee (USINPAC), a bipartisan body representing the political views of the Indian-American community in the US, said: "On behalf of the Indian American community and friends of India in the United States, USINPAC extends its warm congratulations to Mr. Narendra Modi for leading the BJP to a spectacular victory in these historic elections in India. We are even more heartened to note that the BJP will have single party majority in parliament."
It said the "people of India today stand poised to unleash their immense potential for the good of the country and global progress towards peace, no poverty, and good health for all".
"The Indian diaspora and friends of India in the United States and across the world cheer and send our best of wishes to the people of India, and the leadership of Mr. Narendra Modi," it added.
