New Delhi: The Trump administration has thrown a ‘googly’, Shiv Sena which has recently fallen out with the BJP has said in its mouthpiece Saamana. ‘India is now no more a developing country but a developed nation. This is a big crisis for India. India is miles away from the status of developed countries on parameters like education, health, employment, cleanliness and poverty alleviation,’ it said.
‘India is not a developed country and now it will no more avail the benefits that a developing nation gets. However, our Prime Minister will find a way out and will convert the bitter gourd sent by Trump into a sweet,’ the editorial said.
The US removed India from the list of developing countries. The USTR office has classified India as a developed economy, ineligible for benefits given by Washington to developing countries.
And who else to take a bitter pun on that? Of course, a bitter ex-ally.
