The U.S. government may have denied a visa to him, but Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi continues to address global audiences.

On Monday, Mr. Modi addressed the Global Meet of Emerging Markets Forum in Washington through video conferencing, delivering his refrain on “Effective Governance: Getting results in a democracy.”

It may have been a global meet, but the Chief Minister spoke largely on his national ambition through the prism of his own avowed success story of Gujarat, promising that he could do to the country what he did to his home State.

“Those in the government have to understand that people’s good is the biggest agenda. Governments are guardians of people’s interests,” Mr. Modi said.
