    Are these free gifts or loans to be repaid over a long period of time?. If these are free gifts why not use these funds to build toilets in India where people are seen squatting on drains when viewed from air?. The people in this picture are all Indians dabbling in matters to be sorted out by another country. Has GOSL handed over this part of the country to India?.
