China Syndrome

  • The BJP government in Karnataka seems obsessed with China
  • In the last ten months, 633 farmers were sent there on sponsored trips; the target is 1,000 farmers by year-end.
  • Critics say party workers are being sent on a jaunt in the guise of farmers
  • In 2007, 200 legislators from all parties went on a China trip
  • Chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa is the latest to head to Beijing and Shanghai

Yediyurappa, seems in thrall of Communist China. The chief minister is on a six-day tour of the red country with a high-level delegation, mainly spending time in Beijing and Shanghai. Apparently, he hopes to attract investment.
