Commenting on US ambassador's upcoming meeting with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, BJP leader Kirti Azad on Tuesday said that Modi was not dying to go to America and that the latter was extending an olive branch to Modi looking at the changed scenario.
"Modi is not dying to go to America. It is upto them to decide whatever they want to do. The U.S seeing the changed scenario is now extending an olive branch to Modi," said Azad.
"We will decide it when the time comes on whether we want to go or not," he said.
Nancy Powell, the US ambassador to India, will be meeting Modi this week, reflecting a turn around by the U.S after turning its back on him over the 2002 Gujarat riots.
In 2005, Modi had been denied a U.S visa under domestic laws related to human rights.
