He added, "Local anchors made the spokespersons from
India to provide update to the listeners directly in
many cities of Canada on a daily basis.
At a Community Centre in North East Calgary, where most people
from Delhi and Punjab live, a meeting was held for AAP
They also arranged a live interview from Patiala
in favour of AAP.
Pratap Kapila, a social analyst in London, said:
"Modi is an absolute genius and his charm with Obama was
a work of art.
"He has a massive amount of work but sadly he has not got
very many able chaps around him; which is why Kejri has an
edge and will win.
"Modi speaks beautiful Hindi and is honest."
"NRIs visiting India and tourists in general would
certainly welcome any improvement the way the capital city
is run, like efficient essential services, clean
environment, better traffic management, clean running water,
24-hour electricity supply and other amenities for an
ordinary citizen," said senior broadcaster Chaman Lal Chaman
He supported BJP but during the previous elections his
favourite was AAP that had brought some fresh air:
anti-corruption stand, efficiency and transparency.
Any comparison between Modi and Kejri cannot be fair.
"As the Prime Minister, Modi is a giant," said Chaman.
From Melbourne, a certified accountant, Shan Gupta, wrote:
"A stable Delhi government providing security and basic
amenities will definitely boost NRIs visits to India,
particularly from those who come from the North and Central
"NRIs are often asked by their colleagues to recommend
places to visit in India.
"Due to fear of a subsequent complaint, NRIs generally
refrain from doing so.
"They cannot assure foreigners of their security during
their stay in India.

deliver without fear or favour."
"Those seeking a change felt Kejriwal deserved a chance
to show his worth.
"Talking to fellow NRIs in London, I felt their support
for AAP had increased in the UK.
"There were clear signs from the very beginning that AAP
may do well in the elections albeit, their track record of
short tenure," said Puri.
"Even hardcore BJP supporters in UK are now finding a
good reason to congratulate AAP for the way they have fought
Delhi Assembly elections; I believe that BJP missed a trick
by making personal attacks on Kejriwal rather than focusing
on election agenda.
"Similarly introduction of Kiran Bedi came too late.
"They should have left her with the Party immediately
after Modiji won his landslide victory.
"When it comes to the post mortem of BJP’s election
strategy it would be felt that the raising communal
intolerance in BJP’s rule also become a major factor.
"The personal attacks on Kejriwal were a blunder by BJP
as everyone knows that he is an honest gentleman. Besides,
Kiran Bedi seemed politically very immature.
"Her communication skills on the public forum were
pathetic and many feel by putting her on the helm, the BJP
lost an opportunity.
"Many felt that Harshvardhan could have been a better
option as a CM for Delhi, added Puri.
Gyatri Saggar, a journalist in USA, wrote:
"If Delhi is ruled by AAP, there would be less investment in
Delhi because of the tussle between the central and Delhi
government, resulting in less progress in Delhi.
"Most of the overseas Indians are enthused by Modi and would
want his vision translated in to progress for Delhi.
"Kejriwal was a fresh face with a fresh mission.
