They were all very happy and excited when the RBI (with the Gates-Foundation-Director on their board) and Narendra Modi declared most circulating cash in India void, financially effectively excluded large sections of the population from financial and most forms of economic exchange, very often sentencing them to hunger and misery for weeks and months or forcing them to sell their land and livestock to survive. It does not matter to the self-declared good-doers, as long as lots of merchants and semi-rural, semi-poor people are brought into THE system. +++ How India became Bill Gates' guinea pig: A conspiracy as recounted by the main actors was originally published on Washington's Blog

NEW DELHI: Amid the Trump Administration's move to curb H1B visas that will impact India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today pressed the US to have a "balanced and farsighted perspective" on the movement of skilled professionals. He made the comment while receiving a 26-member bi- partisan US Congressional delegation here. Welcoming the Congressional Representatives to India, he said their visit augurs a good start to bilateral exchanges following the change in the US Administration and Congress. He recalled his positive conversation with President Donald Trump and the shared commitment to further strengthen ties that have grown deeper in the last two and a half years. In this regard, he recognized Congress' strong bipartisan support for the India-US partnership, a PMO statement said. Modi shared his perspective on areas where both countries can work even more closely, including in facilitating greater people-to-people linkages that have over the years helped contribute to each other's prosperity.
