Pritish Nandy consumed by jealousy against rich NRIs writes:
“Pampering the prodigal son “:http://www.sulekha.com/redirectnh.asp?cid=311582
bq. The truth is: they have nothing to offer us. The $ 80 billion we have in our reserves have not come from them. It has come from foreign investors who see a future in India. All we get from our NRIs is gratuitous advice and boastful success stories that we can easily do without. They need India. India does not need them.
The truth is:
“Mayawati invites NRI investment in UP”:http://in.news.yahoo.com/030604/139/24vid.html
bq. “I have come here because in Uttar Pradesh my government has started many schemes to initiate various businesses. People of Indian origin staying here in the U.S. and the state (Uttar Pradesh) will be able to benefit from this,” Mayawati added.
“Budget seeks to boost NRI, FDI inflows”:http://www.rediff.com/budget/1998/jun/01bud07.htm
bq. The Union Budget for 1998-99 announced several measures to revive the economy and encourage non-resident Indian and foreign investment to meet the possible shortfall in resources resulting from sanctions imposed by the United States and other industrialised countries in the wake of five nuclear tests conducted by India last month.
“India seeks NRI investment in highways, IT “:http://22.214.171.124/search?q=cache:j8Kz3Y1b5wAJ:news.sawaal.com/09-Jun-2001/National/8.htm+NRI+Investment+INdia&hl=en&ie=UTF-8
bq. India on Friday invited foreign investments by NRIs in the field of highways, oil exploration, information technology and power projects and assured them all possible support.
bq. They are pouring money into India, especially into the real-estate market. Since the September 11 attacks in the US, investments in Indian markets have gathered pace. NRIs have pumped in a major chunk of the $1.75 billion India earned in forex between October 26 and November 30 last year. NRIs accounted for 16 per cent of the foreign investments in India in a year.
I did not expect that Pritish Nandy would turn out to be another liar like Praful Bidwai.
