Beijing, October 19 (NIA): The Chinese official publication Global Times says in an article published on October 18, that India lacks the infrastructure and systems to make a success of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” plan and compete with China in the domestic and global market.
The country still needs to build roads and highways to have proper connectivity across the length and breadth of the nation. India suffers from chronic power and water shortages and, worst of all, corruption is highly prevalent from top to bottom in every single government department. Indian politicians are busy courting the West instead of improving ties with China. The US is no-one’s friend. The Americans are just indulging India in order to contain China, as the US is jealous of China’s development and global power, Global Times says..
“India has enough money but the majority of it is concentrated with politicians, bureaucrats and a few crony capitalists. Indian elites don’t want to spend funds available in the country, which in reality is the taxpayers’ money but is utilized by the Indian establishment for its own personal consumption.”
“Nowadays, the world is witnessing rapid changes. Automation has taken over a lot of basic manufacturing jobs all across the globe. Imports and exports are down. It would be completely suicidal for Chinese companies to put their money in India by starting manufacturing projects there. The labor class in India is not very hard working or efficient. India has numerous labor unions. Their main aim is how to extract more money from the factory owners by doing the least amount of work.”
“In any case, Indian businessmen flock to China in large numbers to buy products from China and sell them in India. This model suits China, so why disturb it by going and wasting money setting up manufacturing facilities in India?”
