January 05, 2007 01:03 IST
"USINPAC offers its expertise and lessons learnt in Washington DC style of lobbying to our fellow NRIs in other countries," USINPAC founder and chairman Sanjay Puri told reporters in New Delhi.
He said the USINPAC delegation would meet Bhartiya Janata Party President Rajnath Singh and leaders of the Left party who have expressed their apprehension over the nuclear deal.
Puri said his organisation had been relentlessly lobbying in the US before the Congress passed the deal.
"We will keep working with the US administration to help bridge the gap between Indian and US positions and hope to see a mutually satisfying relationship between the two countries," he said.
USINPAC delegation is here for participating in the Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas to be inaugrated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on January 7.
