The government of India doesn't beg the NGO's to give it money. In fact, the government is now stopping these NGOs from pumping money into India for their nefarious activities. I am afraid you are living in denial and trying to come up with a false equivalence. I still didn't hear you stating you don't want Pakistan to beg for things the government of Pakistan should assign high priority. I don't see any self-respect in your nation.
EAGLE STRIKE | 4 years ago | Reply | Recommend @observer: 63 billion dollars are pumped down the indias throat through US NGOs yet india has 700 million humans living below 2 dollars a day. Yet they come here and do chest thumping. 35% of world's poor live in india. Wake up instead of spewing venom here.
