Barack Obama ready to welcome new Indian government with open arms
Washington: United States President Barack Obama came forward on Wednesday to announce that he is looking forward for the formation of a new government in India and wants to join hands with it and work closely.

“We look forward to the formation of a new government once election results are announced and to working closely with India’s next administration to make the coming years equally transformative,” Obama had said in a statement yesterday.

Conveying congratulations message to the people of India for wrapping up the polling successfully, he stated, “India has set an example for the world in holding the largest democratic election in history, a vibrant demonstration of our shared values of diversity and freedom.’’

Over 500 million eligible voters casted their votes to decide the fate of 543 members of Parliament, who would very soon chose a new Prime Minister.

Almost every exit poll result has shown that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will take over as the new ruling government in the country dethroning the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA). The predictions claim that BJP will enjoy the clear majority in recently concluded Lok Sabha polls because of the positive influence of its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

The election results will be announced on May 16.

The Congress, which has ruled the country for a decade now, has been projected to get around 100 seats. Outgoing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had announced earlier this year that he would not seek a third term.

In his statement, Obama also referred to the strong friendship that the two countries have developed over the last decades, cutting across party lines.

“The United States and India have developed a strong friendship and comprehensive partnership over the last two decades, which has made our citizens safer and more prosperous and which has enhanced our ability to work together to solve global challenges,” Obama said.
