    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has pledged at the United Nations that his country’s vaccine production capacity would be made available globally to fight the coronavirus crisis. “As the largest vaccine-producing country of the world, I want to give one more assurance to the global community today,” Modi said in a prerecorded speech to the UN General Assembly. “India’s vaccine production and delivery capacity will be used to help all humanity in fighting this crisis.” Modi made the pledge even as India is struggling to contain the spread of the virus, which has already infected 5.9 million Indians and left...

  • Coronavirus Drug: India Releases Hydroxychloroquine And Paracetamol After Trump Speaks To Modi

    International Business Times ^ | 04/07/2020 | James Patterson
    India has removed bans on Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) after facing pressure and perhaps a prospect of retaliation by the U.S. and President Donald Trump. With a population just short of 1.4 billion people, second only to China, India has yet to feel the full impact of the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus. The latest statistics from Worldometers, a website that is tracking COVID-19, shows India with only 4,858 confirmed cases and 136 deaths as of April 7. By all appearances, this is a ticking time bomb considering areas of India with a dense and financially stressed population and a health...

    US President Donald Trump has requested Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to supply hydroxychloroquine tablets to the US so that the drug can be used to treat COVID-19 patients. The two leaders spoke on the telephone to assess the situation with respect to the coronavirus pandemic. The US President Donald Trump said that the Indian administration led by Prime Minister Modi was giving serious consideration to export hydroxy-chloroquine to the US. Until now, India which manufactures a massive amount of hydroxychloroquine, has put a hold on the export of this drug and its formulations. Hydroxychloroquine is an anti-malarial drug which...

The two leaders then headed to a new cricket stadium - the biggest in the world - where Trump heaped praise on Modi as an "exceptional leader, a great champion of India" in front of a crowd of nearly 100,000. "America loves India. America respects India, and America will always be faithful and loyal friends to the Indian people," Trump told the ecstatic crowd, many in Trump-emblazoned baseball caps.

    It’s unfortunate that live coverage of President Trump receiving what AP calls “adulation from a massive, colorful crowd” of 125,000 took place during the wee hours of the morning for most Americans. But the consequences of his roughly 36 hours in India will be long lasting and important. He is about to retire for the night in New Delhi after the enormous rally in Ahmedabad, the economically advanced capital of the state Gujarat, Prime Minister Modi’s home turf, and a quick visit to the Taj Mahal. However personally gratifying it may have been to equal the overseas crowds Barack Obama...

    U.S. President Donald Trump arrived in the west Indian city of Ahmedabad Monday, beginning his first official visit to India with the inauguration of the world’s largest cricket stadium. In his two-day visit, Trump is expected to raise several issues, including religious freedom, with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Accompanied by First Lady Melania, daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, Trump addressed a gathering of about 100,000 people at the “Namaste Trump” event at the newly-built cricket stadium in the city of Ahmedabad in Gujarat, the home state of Modi, Monday afternoon. “All over the planet, people take great joy...

    More than 100,000 people are expected to attend an event in a cricket stadium honoring President Trump's visit to India hosted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi later this month. Yahoo Sports reported Wednesday that the stadium, which is expected to seat 110,000 when completed, is still under construction but is set to be completed and filled to the rafters for Trump's Feb. 24 visit to the country. Trump is set to visit India for two days, where he will attend a speech by Modi called "How Are You Trump" at the massive Sardar Patel Stadium. The stadium, once completed, will...

    Scores of people have been killed as a result of violent protests against a citizenship amendment law, which critics say discriminates against Muslims. Indian PM Narendra Modi says the opposition is distorting the facts. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday categorically rejected accusations that his government's new citizenship law was anti-Muslim. The total number of people killed has reached at least 23 since violence broke out over the Citizenship Amendment Act that was passed in parliament last week, and it shows no sign of abating. The law makes it easier for religious minorities from Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan to...

    Key Points Modi’s “rapturous welcome” at Madison Square Garden in 2014 was repeated at the Howdy Modi festival in Houston, where his rapport with Trump was on display. “Make in India” and “America First” were evident at the leaders’ unresolved tariff equity discussions. The cost advantage for US firms to operate in low-waged India and questions around H-1B visas are background issues. New collaborations are crucial to Indo-US strategic interoperability. The US-proposed tri-service exercise aims to consolidate US-India defence ties. Summary US and Indian national and strategic interests play out across a range of issues and areas of potential engagement....

    When Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a rally of 50,000 Indian Americans in Houston last month, a planned guest appearance by President Donald Trump stole the headlines. But a telling moment arrived when the announcer at the event — called Howdy Modi — began reading a prepared list of members of Congress who had been expected to attend. Among those named was Texas Rep. Al Green, a Democrat. But Green wasn’t there. A day earlier, he had announced in a statement that he was bailing from the event, calling it a “photo op” for Trump. He wasn’t alone. India,...

    President Trump — and his views on immigration, Muslims and foreign affairs — isn’t popular with Indian Americans. That’s not likely to change much, so why did Trump travel to Houston over the weekend to appear with the recently reelected Indian prime minister before thousands of them? More than 80 percent of Indian Americans voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, according to an analysis by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. And according to the Asian American Voter Survey, Trump’s approval rating was 28 percent with Indian Americans registered to vote in 2018. But that...

    The US and India are two of the most populous and powerful democracies in the world. And they are both represented by far-right leaders. Even by the standards of the Trump era, the “Howdy Modi!” meeting in Houston, Texas, this Sunday was weird. The Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, had invited Donald Trump to be his guest at a massive rally in the American heartland. And, unsurprisingly, giving his submissive behavior towards authoritarian leaders, the president had accepted, happily playing second fiddle to a foreign leader on US soil. But beyond these remarkable details, the meeting was in many ways...

Organizers expected roughly 50,000 people to attend the "Howdy Modi" rally at Houston's NRG Stadium. "We welcome India's growing investments right here in the Lone Star state.
