Kerry, who held talks with senior Indian officials on Thursday, voiced optimism about expanding cooperation between the world's two largest democracies after Modi's right-wing government won a decisive electoral mandate.

United States' five point programme to woo Prime Minister Narendra Modi 31.7.2014 DNA: India
The United States of America is seemingly leaving no stone unturned to establish friendly ties with India's new Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In March 2005, the US state department had revoked Modi's visa due to his alleged role in the 2002 riots in Gujarat. But ever since Modi won a landslide victory to become the Prime Minister, there has been growing pressure on the Obama administration to issue Modi a visa.  Now, apart from Bill Clinton and John Kerry recently speaking in favour of Modi, the United States has even dropped Modi's name from the Religious Freedom Report and it seems like the US is making every effort to woo Modi. Here is a list of five things that the US has recently initiated to establish a friendly alliance.  1) Barack Obama's personal phone call and invitation Just a week after Modi was declared the Prime Minister after the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, US President Barack Obama called Modi personally to congratulate him on the BJP's victory.
