    It’s our magnet- the oil- drawing people from all over the world because they were invited by the current
    government- never mind how they enter the country.
    With India’s billion plus people, many cannot find jobs there with their “degrees”.
    The blame must be at modi’s feet, this newly minted dictator just caters for those “rich” who
    calls him their “god”.
    They blend well with our East Indian nationals.
