Prime Minister Narendra Modi has established a strong relationship with the Sikhs, Jasdeep Singh Jassee, a prominent Indian American leader of Sikhs for America, has said while asserting that the free and fair general elections being held in India show the vibrancy and strength of the country’s democratic system.

“Look at what’s happening in the US… (opposition candidate and former president Donald) Trump is being dragged to court and he is not being allowed to speak in his campaign. Compared to that, India has a vibrant democracy and is working very effectively,” Singh said, adding India has set an example in conducting free and fair elections.

Singh will visit India later this month to support Taranjit Singh Sandhu, the BJP candidate from Amritsar. Sandhu is the former Indian ambassador to the US.

“I am confident that Prime Minister Modi will be re-elected for the third consecutive term based on his track record, developmental agenda, and vision for a developed world,” he said. The Punjabi diaspora was enthusiastic about the candidature of Sandhu and is eager to work with the former diplomat to make Amritsar a world-class city in the coming years, he said.

Amritsar, he said, has the potential to be the hub of cultural, religious, and economic development of the world. Successive elected representatives have neglected the city. With Sandhu, the Punjabi American community believes that Amritsar is headed for its golden period, Singh said.

A group of Indian Americans has already announced USD 100 million in investment for the city. Singh, who is leading a high-powered delegation of influential Sikh Americans to campaign for Sandhu in his elections, said.
