AHMEDABAD: Gujarat riots have come to haunt Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi once again.
The US administration on Friday denied a visa to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to visit the country. The denial has reportedly come on the grounds of "violation of religious freedom".
Modi already has a US tourist and business visa which has been revoked.
Modi was to leave for the US on Sunday.
Lobbyists in the US have already flooded Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice with emails to deny the Gujarat CM a visa.
