Caroline Questions Aid To India

Caroline Dinenage has questioned the foreign aid directed to India.

Following a trip to India in September, Caroline appeared on the national Daily Politics show to express concern that India was not doing enough to help its own citizens.

Caroline noted that despite India’s growing wealth, there was an arrogance among the India MPs she met that neglected the immense poverty that many of the Indian population endure.

As a long-standing champion of the need to effectively target aid only at the areas of greatest deprivation, Caroline has welcomed the Government policy to focus only on India’s poorest states and channel aid through grass-root organisations.
