Trump congratulates Modi on poll victory
US President Donald Trump called Prime Minister Narendra Modi to congratulate him for leading the BJP to victory in the just-concluded Assembly polls. “US President HE Mr. @realDonaldTrump called PM @narendramodi to convey his felicitations on the electoral results. @POTUS,” Modi posted on Twitter on Tuesday.

Trump called Modi late on Monday and congratulated him for the victory in the state Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Haryana. The just-concluded Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh and other states reconfirmed Modi's pre-eminence in the political landscape of the country.

Many foreign leaders called him to congratulate over the past fortnight. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and de-facto ruler of United Arab Emirates, was the first foreign leader to congratulate Modi after the poll results.

He was followed by French president Francois Hollande and Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. The other foreign leaders who called to congratulate the prime minister include Mohammed Najib bin Tun Abdul Raza and Stefan Löfven, his counterparts in Malaysia and Sweden.
