These 30 Mahindra SUVs are a part of the US$ 4.5 million grant assistance offered in support of institutions in the African country and were handed over by Amar Sinha, Secretary of Economic Relations in the External Affairs Ministry.

PM Modi regaled the country for the fact that many fourth generation Indians had made their home in Mozambique but had yet retained the culture and identity of India even as they mixed with local societies. He also noted the fact that a large percentage of these Indians staying in Mozambique were from his home town Kutch in Gujarat.

    These vehicles look like the older versions. See the back light.

    Ofcourse. The man roams all over the world and maybe one day he might even sell you and me to push his Adani funding agenda. Mozambique was what Adani was targetting to setup his business in just like Australia and China last year. Wherever Adani wants to start a business, this PM will go and act like a broker with their govt.

    Back home basic food items are all hitting 100-200 rupees while this man hands out money to develop industrial areas in poor countries all the while unemployment rate in India has hit a 30 year low.

    • Sanjay Natarajan

      Unemployment rate hitting 30 year old is a thing to be happy about, not to worry about.

        Yes, I’d guess that reason would be acceptable to those working for BJP’s IT Trolling cell. Guess they pay well.
