George Soros Vs BJP: A big match set to play out!

US billionaire investor George Soros has made it clear that he is dead against Narendra Modi. He opposes Modi on two counts: Nationalism and authoritarianism.

Toward defeating Modi and China's Xi Jinping (among others), Soros has pledged one billion dollars of investment in a "global university". Certain Right-Wing commentators in India have said that anti-BJP forces in the country will have a "financial windfall", thanks to Soros, in the coming years. "They are going to be flooded with huge piles of monies to carry out their propaganda against measures like annulment of Article 370, CAA and NRC," an analyst says.

A commentator has likened this to the alleged Russian interference in the US elections in 2016. After backing Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump, Soros might back Rahul Gandhi in 2024.

YouTube channels, among others, are likely to be flooded with funds to campaign against Modi and his policies in the coming years. However, the BJP's options are not limited either. "Given the parity of resources (Soros allocated $1 billion, BJP gets that much every year) and decredibilisation of mass media and the rise of social media, a media-inspired "revolution" (triggered by Soros) will be far more difficult today," columnist Somnath Mukherjee says.
