    ARE YOU GOING TO VISIT THE PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICANS IF YOU ARE GOING TO KILL THEM BY THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS?The 35 Indians packed into an airtight shipping container unloaded at a British port today are an example of the importance of ports and exports in India’s prosperity that Modi referred to in his Independence Day speech yesterday. Goonda Modi wants to keep India in the gutter, providing cheap labor to foreign companies. You do not abolish the Planning Commission, you immediately increase the size of the Plans tenfold or twenty fold, with unlimited amount of capital available by printing the money, to produce and provide free house, free 4 sets of clothing, free bicycle, free food, free education, free computer etc. to everyone. AMagicalSolutionToPovertyDOTblogspotDOTcom . And unimaginable prosperity in 10 years. India doesn’t do that because it is still under colonial rule through RAW which is a branch of the CIA because of the over 10 million Indians killed after 1857 by gun and sword in just Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Bihar out of a total Indian potion of 200 million. For the first time now India has the means to destroy its colonial masters by exploding the nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destro if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. Without physically destroying India’s colonial masters, nothing will change. RAW, a branch of the CIA constantly waging war upon India, remains in place. Manmohan Singh made India’s servitude deeper by requiring Indian civil servants to go to U.S. universities on whose approval their promotions became dependent. The stupid woman who is the Gujarat chief minister just met the U.S. ambador and asked her to open a visa office in Gujarat so Gujaratis who get admission in U.S. universities can get visas easier, unaware that such dependence in higher education is unnecessary and produces the deepest form of slavery. The stupid Venkaiah Naidu just said Indians should go to U.S. to “learn, earn and return”, unaware that such dependence is unnecessary and is a prescription for slavery. Just as Kakodkar received a huge American bribe to drop his opposition to the nuclear deal and to sabotage India’s Thorium-based program, Nirmala Sitharaman has just received a huge American bribe to let the Americans destroy India’s food security. India’s slavery is the result of Indians killed by the tens of millions and its centers of learning destro. India has to kill Americans by the hundreds of millions and destroy Harvard, Yale and all American centers of learning and research. All IAS and IFS people by training work for the CIA and should be replaced by RSS cadres.Satish Chandra
