Trump calls Modi - congratulated him on electoral success
28 March 2017 Current Affairs: US President Donald Trump yesterday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi and congratulated him on his recent electoral success, the White House said.

Following the elections held in five states that begun on February 4 and ended on March 9 after polling was rescheduled on some seats, Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) formed the government in four states: Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur.

The elections in the five states had turned into a virtual referendum on Modi’s popularity following his decision to demonetise Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 currency notes.

This is the second time Mr Trump has called PM Modi ever since his inauguration as President of the United States. The leaders of the world's two biggest democracies last spoke in January when President Trump called up PM Modi and discussed the security situation in South and Central Asia. India and the United States will "stand shoulder to shoulder" to fight global terrorism, the White House had said after that interaction.
