Cameron targets minority voters

No surprise that David Cameron uses his position to impress the Indian community voters before the 2015 general elections.

During his recent visit to the Asian Lite newspaper office, Cameron said, "the new government (in the UK if voted to power in the May general elections) will cement and create more economic ties with India especially in the fields of infrastructure, smart cities, corridors for enterprising economic development .... we should really try to work together”.

But he fails to understand that the community do understand the election gimmicks and question contradictions. Following gist of the comment by an Indian reader in Bangalore (India), summarises the feelings:

Like the Indian politicians who play the 'caste' card and solicit votes during elections and forget, the British Prime Minister thinks that he could also capture the votes of the Asian migrants in a similar way.
 
He could recall that some of the British parliamentarians sometime ago wanted to bring or brought in a proposal to ensure that those students who are from Asia and go to the UK for higher studies should leave the UK immediately after their studies.

Now the discarded Asians have become valuable partners in progress just prior to the elections. British political system uses the Asians / Africans and then throw them out soon.

Once the Great Britain enslaved Indians and used them as hard labour followed by the use of skilled professionals to assist them in many ways and now the Indian capitalists are welcomed with open hands to enrich the United Kingdom.

And a comment from Delhi reads, “let's settle the visa issues first to prove your commitment towards India. Don't just try to win Indian migrant's votes from your sweet words”. 11/01/15
