Gandhinagar, Feb 13 IBNS | 10 months ago

U.S. Ambassador to India Nancy Powell met Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi here on Thursday.

The meeting took place at Modi's residence at Gandhinagar in Gujarat.

The move signals the end of Washington's nine-year boycott on Modi.

The US had first denied Modi a visa in 2005 over allegations that his government did nothing to stop the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Modi has also not applied for a US visa since the denial.
