"It is also a tribute to India that has proven beyond any doubt that it is a vibrant democracy that facilitates a peaceful transition of power looks rather easy," he said. But the Coalition Against Genocide (CAG), a broad-based group, vowed to "continue the struggle for justice despite Modi victory" and to "uphold India's secular ethos".
"Modi's ascent to the highest executive office in India, is rightly a matter of concern for all who value human rights and religious freedom," calition spokesperson Shaik Ubaid stated. Modi supporters held "election watch parties" in over two dozen cities across the US, including New York, Jersey City, Edison, Chicago, Tampa, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and at several places in the Greater Washington Area. Times Now made a live and interactive streaming of its telecast of the Indian election results from Times Square in New York. (IANS)
