Melbourne (Australia) – External affairs minister S Jaishankar on Saturday referred to billionaire George Soros for his remarks on India’s democracy as “old, rich, opinionated and dangerous.” Jaishankar said that people like Soros start questioning the democratic setup when the electoral outcomes are not according to their liking.
“Few years ago, he actually accused us of planning to strip millions of Muslims of their citizenship, which of course didn’t happen. It was a ridiculous suggestion. But you have to understand what this actually mean. I would take a view that Mr Soros is an old, rich opinionated person sitting in New York who still thinks that his views should determine how the entire world works,” Jaishankar said at an event in Australia.

In his remarks at the Munich Security Conference, George Soros said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is silent on the fraud allegations against Adani Group, asserting that he will have to answer questions from foreign investors and in Parliament.”
