The Hindustan Times reports “US may end 9-year boycott of Modi, envoy asks for meeting“.
If Shri Modi’s office does receive a request for a meeting from Nancy Powell, it should respond with, “Ms Powell is welcome to seek an appointment. The request will be appropriately considered and processed through the standard channels in the order received.” I don’t see why Narendrabhai should bother to meet Ms Powell, considering that he has other things on his plate — or more precisely in his chai kettle.
I hope @narendramodi politely refuses to meet the US ambassador. NM's office should say that he's busy having rallies, chai and charcha.

Update — 3 PM Feb 11th: I believe that Modi has agreed to meet Ms Powell.
