When asked about Modi's hardliner image, Barai said, "Others have been indulging in divisive politics, which is only limited to the appeasement of a particular community, while Modi only focuses on development."
Volunteers of Barai's 'Global Indians for Bharat Vikas' have also been canvassing in favor of BJP candidates in various Lok Sabha constituencies in other parts of the country. "Our volunteers are canvassing in Modi's support in various states, including Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Uttar-Pradesh and Bihar, though I have restricted myself to the Lok Sabha seats in Gujarat," Barai said.
In Gujarat, they have campaigned in Bardoli, Kheda and Anand Lok Sabha constituencies. When asked whether he found any similarities between Modi and Obama, Barai said, "'Country first' attitude is similar between the two leaders."
"This country has become a victim of terrorism, price rise, corruption and we urge people to vote for a candidate, who can combat all this and can improve their living standard. Therefore, casting a vote in favor of Modi means a voter is investing in his future," he added. However, Barai denied any comment over USA's decision to deny Visa to Narendra Modi in the year 2005.
