One thought on “Tenth round of India-Hungary Foreign Office consultations

  1. What is the strategic space between India and Hungary ? Hungary is or will be a strategic ally of the PRC,in the future. Besides, what need of the Hungarian economy can be served by a strategic alliance with the GOI ?

    The Indian economy is at the edge of the precipice.It has no economic or political flexibility.India is now in the USA-Israel camp.It has also drifted away from Russia.

    The GOI is in DEEP economic trouble

    They have no no COVID Plan, and so you will soon have food and drug riots, and thus, political instability
    To divert the people, the GOI will introduce the CAA/NRC, and start a war, which will doom India
    The Indian economy will come to a debilitating slowdown, which will destroy the tax revenues and fiscal stability
    The Health care system of India,will COMPLETELY COLLPASE
    The NPAs of the Indian Banking system,will BLOW UP the Indian Banking system
    The Indian Rupee will collapse,and there will be MASSIVE unemployment

    The Neighbors of India – PRC is in a exceptional economic state, and Pakistan has a scale of population,which is EASILY manageable and bailable,by PRC.

    There is NO better time for PRC and Pakistan to strike – and they WILL STRIKE.

    Y is Hungary betting on the Indians ? The years of the Magis are gone.The Hindoo religion and philosophy of today,has no relation,to the Magis.

    Whichever nation had a strategic alliance,with the Indians – was destroyed.dindooohindoo
