New delhi sources stated that congress leader priyanka gandhi Vadra took on prime minister Narendra Modi's "Howdy, Mody" event in the US last month, saying that the country has reduced H1-B visas for indians seeking to work there despite PM Modi's mega program. Furthermore a study carried out by an American think-tank said the donald trump administration's restrictive immigration policies have led to massive increase in the rejection of petitions for H1-B visas with the highest denial rate among major Indian IT companies.
priyanka gandhi said in her tweet in hindi "The question that everyone should ask the bjp government is that who is being benefited during their tenure. The prime minister went to the united states and held his ''Howdy, Mody'' event but America increased the number of rejections of HB1 visas for those indians wanting to work there". Further the H1-B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise.
Moreover Ms gandhi also kept up her attack on the government over the state of the economy. She said in another tweet "The state of the economy in the country is bad. The service sector has fallen flat. Employment is decreasing. Those ruling are busy in themselves and the people are suffering on every front".
