George Soros, Hungarian- American billionaire investor and philanthropist, criticised and made remarks on Modi and questioned Gautam Adani over the Hindenburg report. He has been in the news and became viral all over the media for his statements.
According to the media reports, Soros, at Munich Security Conference on Thursday, said Modi would ‘have to answer questions’ from the foreign investors and also to the Parliament over the claims against the Adani Group. He said Modi is silent on his links with Adani. Modi has to answer these questions from the investors.
Moreover, he said this will significantly weaken Modi’s grip on India’s federal government and open the door for much-needed institutional changes in the country. ‘I may be naive, but I expect a Democratic rival in India’, Soros added.
His words outraged fierce reactions among the BJP. BJP, the ruling party, says George Soros is not only targeting the Indian Prime Minister Modi but also targeting the Indian Democratic System. Smriti Irani, BJP leader and Union Minister, raised the heat with her remarks. She told the reports, ‘Everyone should condemn Soros remarks in one voice’.
Smriti Irani stated the attack on India would not be tolerated and called Soros a ‘designated economic war criminal’.
