Washington, Aug 21 (IANS) The US, which had shunned Narendra Modi for nearly 10 years, is eager to engage India’s new government led by him and re-energize what some see as a flagging relationship, according to a new Congressional report. Modi “is known as a strong-willed and effective, if perhaps autocratic, administrator,” said the background report for US lawmakers. The report on “India’s New Government and Implications for US Interests” has been penned by K. Alan Kronstadt, specialist in South Asian affairs, for the bipartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS). “Garnering an outright majority in Parliament for the first time in 30 years, Modi’s new government promises fresh US engagement with an Indian leader reputed to be more pro-trade and pro-business than the socialist-oriented ones of the past,” it said.
