Modi to address US associations via satellite

March 20, 2005 15:58 IST

After being denied visa to tour the United States, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will address Indian associations in New York and Florida thorough video conferencing.

Modi will address the Asian-American Hotel Owners Association in Florida on Sunday and a public meeting of the Association of Indian-Americans of North America at Madison Square Garden in New York on March 24, sources in the CM's office said.

If there is any technical hitch in broadcasting or in satellite linkage, his address will be recorded and later sent to the US, the sources said.

When asked about AAHOA's decision to cancel Modi's invitation, they said they were yet to receive any official communication in this regard.

Mike Patel, founder-member of AAHOA, told PTY on Saturday that the association had decided to cancel Modi's invitation.

He said the association supported the US administration decision not to grant Modi visa to tour the country.
