Newt Gingrich skypes Narendra Modi, discusses Gujarat's success

A day after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi met a delegation of senior US Congressmen and business leaders, Modi on Friday held a Skype video conversation with senior US politician Newt Gingrich. The two leaders discussed Gujarat’s economic success.

Comparing the states of Gujarat and USA’s respective economies currently, Gingrich said, “If we had had Gujarat’s growth rates over the last 10 years, we would have been a lot healthier country than we are right now. What you have achieved in Gujarat is a remarkable achievement in improving the quality of life of your own people.”

    I followed US elections closely and even the Republican primaries…Newt Gingrich then did not have many inspiring things to offer to the American people in his bid for the Republican president candidature.

    That said, any endorsement to Modi is good news!

  • doesitmatter

    Newt is a joker. Modi should stay away from rabid republicans.

    • PDT

      Only Republican party has any interest in Modi because both Modi and Repubs have something in common which is limited government, low regulation on business and less bureaucracy and lower taxes. Obama’s dems and left wing media in USA will never have anything to do with Modi since they are in the Congress and UPA mould.

    All said & done , without a solitary narendra modi & so much of media management , vendetta , voteocracy , riots etc etc all over GODFORSAKEN indiAAA , ISLAMIC countries like KUWAIT , UAE , SAUDI ARABIA , OMAN , QATAR have indeed manage dto do much more than what narendra modi is alleged to have achieved in Gujarat.

    I know lots of indian mercenaries , vested interests , gujarati diaspora blah blah will only focus on their own selfish objectives. Hence hectic lobbying with the help of techaanaaalageee (technology).

    I have congratulated him more than he deserves.

    It is ARABS who COMMAND my unalloyed respect & admiration. Along with a few plucky HONEST Americans , PAKISTANIS & MUSLIMS.

    Evangelicals can burn in HELL. I am not going to lose my sleep over their well deserved lot.

    This modi has the proximity & blessings of DIABOLICAL CROOK called art of living SSSSRavishankar.

    DOES not augur well. IS quite a BAD OMEN.

    Whatever happens modi ALSO has to accept the just desserts served by OUR MAKER.

    Sri. Ramana Bhagavan Himself says any victory achieved will be short lived if the so called “conquered/vanquished” are filled with mute indignation, legitimate grievances and accept the leader thrust by resigning themselves to their lot. Than by a genuine liking of the conqueror.

    Muslims of Gujarat according to media, like Modi as congress has been very corrupt & useless. But lot of muslims elsewhere prefer Jayalalithaa. I have my own reasons in addition to the above mentioned for liking only Smt.Jayalalaithaa. Without 3D , twitter halo , computer special effects Jayalalithaa is BORN GOOD.

  • Rajalakshmi

    Now I am more alarmed & dismayed than ever before. Despite this charlatan being exposed as highly greedy , manipulative , behind the scenes Nobel Prize salivating lobbyist etc etc , even now the SSSSRavishankar has accompanied Narendra Modi nominated by BJP as future Prime Minister & are being glorified in Europe. Modi has done a lot for his Gujarat state no doubt. BUT this hobnobbing with SSSSRavishankar does not augur well AT ALL.

  • Rajalakshmi

    Hindus decry Sonia Gandhi & congress party as front for evangelizations & rampant corruption.I agree.I am TOTALLY against these evangelical goons who are LIARS & THIEVES.

    What about hindu charlatans?? Thay are the MOST dangerous. WHY ?

    As hindus filled India is never going to arrest & punish them. Hindus will rally behind such toxic charlatans ( remember Rajiv Malhotra & various influential hindus settled worldwide including America with IIT IIM blah blah) & defend it bandying words like gurutathvam/guruthva/ hindu revolution to fulfill the needs of the time blah blah. P.Chidambaram I always laud for candidly telling “ramdev baba stands exposed at last” when he rioted wearing women’s clothes in Delhi.

    For the future good of this world at large I desire few really good people come together to govern India than making Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India. I was impressed by all reports in media. Infrastructure to impressive governance can be accomplished by Smt.Jayalalaithaa who is far far superior & highly capable. She would never govern based on religious faultlines & fissures. She is one rare GEM of a woman ( person) with a HEART & sharp intellect. My choice for Prime Minister of India is Sow.J.Jayalalithaa. ABLY supported by Sri.Dawood Ibrahim & Sri.Pervez Musharraf. Just like Jayalalithaa there are many Pakistanis , Arabs , Muslims , Americans , British & Jews who are very quick on the uptake. And fair minded.

    These hindoos are very dangerous that way. They will always look down upon MUSLIMS as children of a lesser God. And evengelicals no doubt would join hands with them.

    I AM TOTALLY against that. And most of these hindus are ROTTEN SCUM.Like the converted christians of indiAAA.

  • Rajalakshmi

    The influential & affluent people behind Modi muzzle freedom of speech. Suppress & distort FACTS. They are sans EMPATHY towards women. I have my own personal reasons to state this. Though “saffron terror” was not the right word probably. The fact remains indisputable though. A lot of hindus are extremely CRUEL , malicious including vegetarians. I pray God intervenes in the form of America , Britain , China , Middle East to ensure ONLY Smt.Jayalalithaa’s victory. It is time this division of people on religious beliefs go for good. Above all Smt.Jayalalithaa is truly noble & good. Educated in the real sense.

    When I was a young girl Smt.Jayalalithaa was an actress. She alone impressed me the most of all. Acting was just a profession. She was very well read. Had done extensive reading on Swami Vivekananda & various mundane matters that are also equally important. She had cautioned girls giving such precious information that I heard much later in American tv series Picket Fences. She knows a lot about ecology , animals & birds , good grooming . An excellent dancer. Her Tamil is as flawless as her English. Right from that time in Budge Budge New Central Jute Mills I was drawn to her.

    She has gone through immense trauma in her life & by God’s Grace well deserved has emerged as a Phoenix. I like her for her forthright remarks the way she imparts clarity through telling stories. Excellence is mostly not tolerated by envious mean minded people. Hence she has always been surrounded by hostile treacherous people. At least with America’s help I pray her enemies & detractors are disabled.She never attempted to wear any mask of spirituality as Modi does today by quoting Swami.Vivekananda.

    @Rajalakshmi,

    You have been exercising your right to free speech rather generously here….so much so it has ended up becoming incoherent ramble….Keep them coming….some humor doesnt hurt :-)

    There is no miracle. Morarji Desai took away all the money to his desert state; it was followed by others.

    Recently Mamata Banerjee developed gujarat by giving away the gift of Tata Motors to Gujarat. Many other industries followed that. Otherwise what is Gujarat?

    If Buddadev Bhattacharya could do a Tianamen Square in Singur and kill 8000 Trinamul Congress members including Mamata, there will not be any Modi Miracle.

      I will tell you what Gujarat is ,starting chronologically Gujarat is Hemchandracharya, Dayanand Sarasvati, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Vikram Sarabhai, Homi Bhabha, Tatas, Ambanis, Adanis, Tantis, Godrej, Mafatlal, Wadias just to name a few who have contributed to Indian growth in all kinds of fields. Gujarat has no natural resources and extreme water scarcity still its contributing to the development of India more than not only your bengal by far but also rest of the India combined.Gujarat is industrialization and hard work ethics and desire to succeed even against the tide.Gujarat is synonymous to Success and hard work.Now I ask you what is Bengal? Bengal is a state of laziest and most selfish people. Bengalis have everything, unbelievable natural resources including mineral and ores; the land that can grow gold with water from all kinds of big rivers still you have communism and socialism because you people dont want to work.You want government to give your handout.You people are good for writing poems and thats all. You lazy @$$ ,poor and good for nothing bengalis should be ashamed of your selves, before writing anything derogatory to the great state of Gujarat.
