PPFA thanks US Prez

Patriotic Peoples’ Front Assam (PPFA) appreciates newly crowned US President Donald Trump for his gesture to India terming the largest democracy of the globe as ‘a true friend and partner in addressing challenges around the world’. The northeast India based patriotic forum also expressed happiness that President Trump called Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 24 January 2017 to invite the latter for visiting the United States later this year.

Both the powerful politicians discussed opportunities to strengthen the partnership between the US and India in broad areas such as the economy and defense. They also talked about the security scenario in the region of South & Central Asia and finally resolved that both the democratic nations stand shoulder to shoulder in the global fight against terrorism.

“We find no reason to condemn President Trump for his American first policy and believe that every nationalistic leader has the right to pursue his patriotism without harming other nation’s interest,” said a statement issued by the PPFA.

The forum also denounced the apprehension of some non-resident Indians taking shelter in the US because of President Trump’s aggressive nationalistic policy and argued that the proposed anti-terror strategy of the Republican leader would finally benefit India as a whole in the long run.

“We visualize India’s enhancing role in the international arena after President Trump joins hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin to counter international terrorism affectively. We are optimistic that New Delhi would nurture the relationship for a greater cause without compromising our national interest,” concluded the statement.
