The prediction of India Legal magazine came true on June 21 when Kenneth Juster, deputy director of National Economic Council was appointed as the US Ambassador to India.
In his Delhi Durbar column (which features the latest gossips in the bureaucratic circles in New Delhi) of April 10, Dilip Bobb predicted that Juster would be the next US Ambassador to India. The prediction is in the news item titled Climbing Trump Tower (see picture).
“The Modi visit is scheduled for September, while an old hand, Kenneth Juster who was involved in early negotiations on the Indo-US nuclear deal is likely to be posted to Roosevelt House in Delhi sometime soon,” the news item said.
The date for Modi‘s visit was originally fixed for September as cited in the news item but it was preponed at the request of US President Trump for June.
