Going by some of the media reports US President Donald Trump is likely to speak to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on phone. Political scientists believe that this indicates weighty nature of US ties with India, which have been based on a bipartisan consensus in both countries.
It was Narendra Modi, who was the first world leader to congratulate US President Donald Trump on his victory in election in December last year.
Political scientists also believe that Trump's phone call to Modi could be a gesture of replicating the Indian leader's nationalist surge to power in New Delhi.
During his election campaign Trump has also been mentioning that he has a close relationship with India.
"Under a Trump Administration, we are going to become even better friends, in fact I would take the term better out and we would be best friends," Trump told a largely Hindu-American gathering in Edison, New Jersey, adding, "We are going to have a phenomenal future together," and praising Modi as a very energetic leader he looked forward to working with.
