Assuring that India and the United States bilateral relations will continue to be positive during the presidency of Donald Trump, Shalabh Kumar, a prominent member of Donald Trump’s advisory council said that the newly elected President will declare Pakistan a terror state when the legislation for the same reaches him. He said that Indo-US bilateral relations will touch new heights under the presidency of Donald Trump.
According to Mr.Kumar, the US President Donald Trump is expected to give his assent to the ‘Pakistan State sponsor of Terrorism designation Act”, which was introduced in the house back in September. He said that Donald Trump will be keen to work with the global forces to remove the roots of terrorism.
In September, US Congressmen Ted Poe, Chairman of the house subcommittee on Terrorism and Dana Rohrabacher introduced the Pakistan state sponsor of Terrorism designation Act in the House. As per the bill, the US government is bound to provide with the analysis on the subject within three months.
“There is a coincidence. Modi took the bold step on demonetization and at the same time, Donald Trump won the presidential elections. India and the US will continue to work like before. Trump’s advisory council and other officials are aware of the political relation with India, this will be an advantage. We are also in touch with the Indian officials to enable the continuity of the Indo-US ties”, Shalab Kumar said.
The entrepreneur, who made fortune migrating to the US in 1961 assured that India should not worry about the stricter rules for H1-B visas. He added that US’s service sector will show an annual economic growth of 4%-5% under the presidency of Trump and that this will boost the demand for Indian IT professionals. He noted that there are many positives for India in the election promises made by Donald Trump while predicting that the Indo-US bilateral trade will increase in the coming four years. However, Kumar observed that India should follow easy-trade policies to make this happen.
