Prime News, National (New Delhi), February 15:- While preparations are in full swing to make President Donald Trump’s forthcoming visit to the country a huge success, BJP’s estranged former NDA ally Shiv Sena said on Saturday (February 15, 2020) that the United States Administration has landed India in big crisis by removing it from the list of developing countries.
In a fiery editorial in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, the Maharashtra-based party mentioned that the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has recently taken India off the developing country list ahead of President Trump’s visit, which is not a good development.
“The Trump Administration has thrown a ‘googly’. India is now no more a developing country but a developed nation. This is a big crisis for India. India is miles away from the status of developed countries on parameters like education, health, employment, cleanliness and poverty alleviation,” the Saamana editorial stated.
Expressing further concerns, the editorial said, ”India is not a developed country and now it will no more avail the benefits that a developing nation gets.” Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Uddhav Thackeray-led party said that ”he will find a way out and will convert the bitter gourd sent by Trump into a sweet.”
“This bitter gourd adversely affecting India’s global trade prospects has come at a time when the Centre and the Gujarat government are making full efforts for Donald Trump’s visit and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is himself monitoring it,” the Saamana editorial added. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
