Overseas friends of BJP bet on ‘chai pe charcha’ in US

Drumming up support for Narendra Modi, the Overseas Friends of BJP (OFBJP) is organising hundreds of ‘chai pe charcha’ events in the US and calling up people in India to influence potential voters. OFBJP US president, Chandrakant Patel, who has been travelling across the US to mobilise non-resident Indians for the ‘Modi for PM’ campaign, claimed that such high level of enthusiasm has never been seen among Indian Americans in recent times.

Ahead of the elections, Patel said OFBJP and several other like-minded organisations have come together to organise ‘chai pe charcha’ at more than 100 places in the United States.

These meetings are being held even in smaller cities that have only a few hundred Indian Americans. Some of the cities where such events are being held include Edison, Jersey City, New Brunswick, Parsippany, Mahwah in New Jersey, Washington DC metropolitan area, Tampa, Melbourne and Orlando in Florida, Houston and Dallas in Texas, Chicago, Pennsylvania, Los Angeles, Boston, New York and Memphis.
