Trump''s India visit preparations show ''slave mentality'': Sena
MUMBAI: The Shiv Sena on Monday said the ongoing preparation for the much awaited visit of US President Donald Trump is a reflection of the "slave mentality" of Indians.
Trump's India trip is like the visit of a "Badshah" (emperor), an editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said.
Taking a dig at the construction of a wall on a plot having several slum structures in Ahmedabad ahead of Trump's visit there, the Sena said the US president's trip would neither stop the fall of rupee's value in forex market nor offer betterment to those (slum dwellers) behind the wall.
"Before Independence, British King or Queen used to visit one of their slave nations like India. The kind of preparations going on from taxpayers' money for the arrival of Trump is similar to it. This reflects the slave mentality of Indians," it said.
The Sena also took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation's (AMC) move to build wall on a plot to "hide the slums" on the route through which Trump's convoy would pass.
"Former prime minister Indira Gandhi had once given the slogan 'Garibi Hatao', which was ridiculed for a long time. It seems now Modi's plan is 'Garibi chupao' (hide poverty)," the Marathi publication said
Is there any financial allocation for such a wall being built in Ahmedabad? Is the US going to offer loan to India to build such walls across the country? it wondered.
"We have heard Trump is going to be in Ahmedabad for only three hours but the wall construction is costing almost Rs 100 crore to the state exchequer," it said.
It is basically a political arrangement between Prime Minister Modi and US President Trump, the Sena claimed.

Slave Mentality?? Oh.. Ok.. In the same manner, US has accorded Modi a Grand welcome with several cultural events during Modi's Visit at their counrty.. Will you also describe that as "Americans turns as slaves for Modi??"

you think Modi being a grand welcome is because of his greatness-no there is a lot of your people in the place and the President just wanted to show a big crowd for his own personal reasons. Modi is a little man in world affairs. Remember it, understand it, digest it and repeat it.
