Washington: Bureaucrat-turned-politician K J Alphons, who tried to convince US lawmakers to revoke visa restrictions on Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, has failed to receive any firm commitment on the issue.
However, he exuded confidence that the US may change its stand soon.
A national executive member of the BJP, Alphons primarily came to the US to attend the Annual Prayer Breakfast with US President Barack Obama on February 7.
In addition to that he has been meeting Senators, Congressmen, officials and academicians, besides addressing speaking at the prestigious Harvard University.
"I have been telling that if they do not invite Modi now and revoke its policy of denying him a visa, it might be too late for the United States as he is headed for a much larger role in national politics," Alphons told .
He said Modi is the most business like politician he has even seen and that he saw a greater role for him in Indian politics.
Alphons said that he has not received any firm commitment from US lawmakers on the change in US policy but exuded confidence that this will happen soon.
