I am very sad to see this news, knowing that so many people have this food, which give impression that some do not want to change this picture

I would consider him the natural candidate for investing this money. I can’t see why you would need foreign investment, let alone a Western supermarket for that.

To talk about ideology when stomachs are without food, a population worse off than the sub-saharan African continent… this be comparable to genocide. Was Pol Pot worse than the leaders at the helm of this country? Look at the figures. Less than 60% of the agricultural produce making its way to feed the nation while politicians, administration and middle-men make money.

Since India’s allergy to infrastructure is a known disease, I am sure if we allow 100% FDI in retail, we will be somehow in a position to accomodate kickbacks to the vested interests. At least this way, the poor don’t get to die of hunger.
