Indian PM Narendra Modi faces an embarrassing blow
MUMBAI – Indian media has termed the United Nations (UN) visit of Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi as biggest failure. The Indian media has stated that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is fully celebrating the tour despite not having secured the much-touted trade deal with the US. Also, the issue of Kashmir became further complicated between him and US President Donald Trump.
Trade has undoubtedly become an unavoidable stumbling block in the relationship, even as both sides continue to fiercely fight out trade disputes at the World Trade Organization (WTO).
India was left high and dry as none of the American multinationals that met Modi yet committed to any big-ticket investment.
“On the issue of Kashmir, too, Prime Minister Modi could not extract much from his “friend” Trump.
While Trump continued the rhetoric of mediating the Kashmir issue between New Delhi and Islamabad unabashedly, the US also demanded “rapid action” in easing restrictions in Jammu Kashmir, and urged India to hold elections at the earliest opportunity.”
