Modi's appeal affected AAP's support among diaspora, says Kejriwal
Thursday January 22, 2015 8:00 PM, IANS

Support for the AAP among Indians living abroad has suffered a setback because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal, its leader Arvind Kejriwal has said.

"Yes, it's true that diaspora support has been affected due to Modi's appeal," Kejriwal told IANS in an interview.

An offshoot of an anti-corruption agitation, the AAP had attracted a number of expatriates who volunteered for the party in the run-up to the 2013 assembly polls in which it ousted the three-term Congress government in Delhi.

The outfit had also received huge donations from them.

In his official trips aboard, including to the US and Australia, Modi has had well-attended exclusive interactions with Indians abroad. He has also announced a slew of measures, including lifelong visas for Persons of Indian Origin.
