U.S. ambassador to India resigns
They are probably going to replace her with another Harvard or Yale graduate, with mediocre skills, and political protÃ©gÃ©-hood, who will further ruin whatever is left of Indo-US relations.
Did she resign in protest of C-130 J crash ?
Or a Devyani fallout ??
And article that came out last week
US ambassador Nancy Powell likely to be replaced in India if Modi becomes PM - The American Bazaar
Maybe it's just everything put together.
The US should appoint a political emissary if they are serious about enhancing Indo-US relations.
The indian stand at the UN regarding the Ukraine will be food for thought.
I won't feel sorry to see her go.
The India US relations were on the upswing, but under her watch, this blooming and warm relationship nosedived and crashed.
I learn that more than the Khobargade case, what irked the Govt was that the maid's husband was sneaked out of India under very controversial manner and illegal buying of tickets by the US flunkey under Powell without taxes, which is a privilege that is only extended to serving diplomats as per the UN conventions.
It is believed that one Mr Shah, a Gujarati and an American of Indian origin would be the replacement, if approved by US Congress.
However, the problem for such a person would be that Indian would expect him to think as an India and he, on the other hand, would have to be a true blue American!
He will have the same problem like the Australian Ambassador of Indian origin juggling desires of both sides as was when there was the claim of racist attacks on Indians.
eh? what has the crash anything to do with her?
Read somewhere that an Indian origin guy is front-runner for the job.
She resigned because she did not want to go through a cavity search at airports. She knew her number was coming up after the election results. So she got out as soon as she could. Anyway Modi got the US to force her to drag her sorry ass to Gandhinagar and meet him. That I am sure was the high point of her miserable career.

Rise of BJP and Powell's Recall - The New Indian Express
It seems nancy powell lost her job for her misleading views on Modi to US administration and US govt is trying to mollify Modi by appointing a Gujarathi origin US citizen in her place if these reports are correct.
But still these foreigners are not stopping their anti modi bandwagon
