Behind BJP’s Diaspora Dividends: Injecting A Dose Of Ownership

One of the success stories of the first term of the Modi government was its outreach to the Indian diaspora and a gala that used to be an unmistakable part of almost each of the Prime Minister’s trips abroad—all planned and executed by the BJP. And in the run-up to the recent general elections, the outreach manifested itself in a big way. As Vijay Chauthaiwale, the man who heads the BJP’s foreign affairs cell, told SNI’s Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, NRIs made 2 million calls to India to canvass for Modi, around 700 actually came down to India to campaign actively, of which about of 100 have been invited for Modi’s swearing-in.
