              PM should insist the hosts not to bribe the Indian news publications/journalists and of course the politicians.

                Yes, Mr Modi, India has the potential to progress fast. It has all the basic factors to register growth on the double. Only thing it lacks is an intelligent and effective administration that has the know-how to remove all those useless regulations that hamper growth. When are you going to attend to that nitty-gritty stuff, now that both your cabinet colleagues (like Gadkari) and industrialists (like Godrej) have voiced their frustration about the outdated, choking regulations out in the open? The nation gave you, Mr PM, a golden opportunity on the platter, so to say. But it looks like you are wasting it away by being more focused on self-aggizement. If you do not have any meaningful progress to show, come next elections, it would matter little which countries you visited, who you met and who you shook hands with. The nation wants a humming economy, and jobs and employment for its millions. Time has come for you to Produce or Perish. Mrs Sunitha Kumar, USA

                  Mr Modi is interested in Foriegn Trips and foreign affairs. He so far showed little interest in the serious issues whenever they cropped up. We need a PM who is interested in the internal affairs. Today India is taken over by low life communal thugs.
