Ab ki baar Modi sarkaar? America tayyar
In a separate statement that went lock-step with the White House message, the State Department also said it looks forward "to working with the leaders chosen by the Indian people to advance this important partnership and to set an ambitious agenda."
Neither statement referred to the exit polls or to Modi by name, pending formal announcement of the election results, and the parliamentary process that will pitchfork the 14th Prime Minister of India into office sometime next week. But the sentiment in the messages, released even as exit poll projects were flashing a victory for Modi-led BJP/NDA, was unmistakable: Washington will do business with whoever the people the India will elect.
