Terming the resignation by the US ambassador Nancy Powell as a strong example of Modi wave in India, Punjab BJP chief Kamal Sharma said it was the same US, which did not withdraw the false case against an Indian diplomat, but now sought the resignation of Powell as she had underestimated the swelling power of Narendra Modi and BJP in India.

Sharma said Powell’s proximity with the UPA government led her to underestimate the Modi wave in India. “She sent a very cold report regarding Modi, but when the US realised that Powell’s reports did not match with the reality, it first decided to send her to meet Modi in Gujarat, but later sought the resignation of its ambassador,” Sharma maintained.

He further said that Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and the entire Congress, which termed Modi wave as a hot air balloon, would now better understand facts about Modi.

On the issue of Operation Bluestar being repeatedly raised by Congress candidate Capt Amrinder Singh, Sharma said Arun Jaitley and the BJP had already said that Capt himself was in the party that planned and executed the Operation Bluestar.
