RSS affiliate bats for dropping Mor from RBI board


New Delhi : The RSS-affiliated SJM has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding removal of Nachiket Mor from the RBI board on grounds of conflict of interest.

“..there is no case for retaining Nachiket Mor on the board of Reserve Bank of India (RBI). It is a fit case of conflict of interest, as his principal employer BMGF receives foreign funds and the RBI is regulator of the fund,” the Swadeshi Jagran Manch co-convener Ashwani Mahajan said in his letter to Modi.

He further alleged that the activities of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) are suspicious, reports PTI.

“We request you to take stringent action, so that the message must go to all that they can’t take India for granted,” the letter added.

Mor is full-time India representative of BMGF, which is under strict vigil of the Ministry of Home Affairs and is actively getting funds from foreign sources, Mahajan said in his letter.

The fact that BMGF is functioning in India with RBI’s permission makes it a glaring case of conflict of interest, he said.

The Home Ministry is keeping a vigil on BMGF because of the allegations that the foundation is working for multinational companies to influence government policies on health and agriculture sectors in their favour, the SJM said.
