New Delhi: Union Minister Smriti Irani slammed the remarks made by billionaire investor George Soros in his speech at the Munich Security Conference where he said that he expected a “revival of democracy” after the Hindenburg report.
Smriti Irani lashed out at Soros and said “George Soros, who hedges bets against many countries, has now made known his ill intentions in the democratic processes of India.”
The minister further added that “It is evident from his statements that he has pronounced funding over one billion dollars to target leaders like PM Modi. This is significant,”.
She said, “Those who support Soros need to know that democracy has prevailed in India and continues to do so and as a party worker of the BJP, I can say that these designs to weaken Indian democracy will be met by the might of India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”
Earlier, Soros at the Munich Security Conference on Thursday said Prime Minister Modi would be weakened by the stock woes of business tycoon and alleged close ally Gautam Adani, “opening the door” to a democratic revival in the country.
The 92-year-old billionaire philanthropist said that Modi would “have to answer questions” from foreign investors and Parliament on allegations of fraud and stock manipulation at Adani’s industrial empire, noting that PM Modi had been “silent” on the topic.
