ISRAELI PM’S 4TH DAY VSISIT IN INDIA Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t stop to greet, Indian Jews upset
Around 50 members of the Jewish community of Ahmedabad, who had gathered outside the Sabarmati Ashram to welcome Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi were left disappointed on Wednesday morning. The two leaders neither waved at them nor their car slowed down near the spot allocated to the community. In fact, most of them did not know when the cars of the two PMs drove past them. They had bouquets and were hoping we could at least see both the leaders briefly. The youngsters of the community, too, were upset as they had practised a song for the leaders. What was the point of even calling us,” said Allon Reubens, principal of Reubens School. “We were told Netanyahu would come in an open jeep. We are a tiny community and it would have meant a lot had they halted for just two minutes. This was a flop show. They could have at least waved at us. What did they then call us to stand here for?” asked Joseph Pingle, a canteen owner.
