'Slave mentality': Sena slams preparations ahead of Trump visit

Feb 17, 2020 13:31 IST

The Shiv Sena slammed the BJP over the ongoing preparations for US President Donald Trump's visit calling it a reflection of the "slave mentality" of Indians. In its mouthpiece Saamna, the Sena said Trump's India trip is like the visit of a Badshah. The Sena took a dig at the construction of a wall to cover slums in Ahmedabad ahead of Trump's visit, saying Trump's trip would neither stop the fall of the value of the Rupee in forex market nor improve the lives of slum dwellers. The editorial said, before Independence, when the Queen would to visit one of their slave nations like India, these kind of preparations would be done. Targeting PM Modi, the article said former prime minister Indira Gandhi was ridiculed for the slogan 'Garibi Hatao', but Modi's plan now seems to be 'Garibi chhupao'.
