Dubai: The NRI Global Business Summit which was organised under the leadership of prominent Indian businessman and NRI, BR Shetty was reportedly failed to attract NRI community and was an absolute failure, according to reports of Malayalam new channel ‘Jai hind’
The organisers of the summit had said that they were expecting about 5000 people to participate in the summit. It had stirred a controversy after banners of the summit were shared. The banners read ‘Hum bhi Chowkidar’. The organisers later clarified that it was apolitical event and refuted reports of affiliation to the BJP. The name of the event was later changed to ‘Naya Bharat’.
The rumors of the summit being orchestrated by the BJP in the wake of forthcoming Lok Sabha Election started doing rounds when close aide of Prime Minister Narendra Modi attending the program was confirmed by the organisers. Moreover, attendees praising and sloganeering in favour of PM Modi ahead of commencing the summit only fuelled the fire to such rumors.
The ‘Hum bhi Chowkidar’ tagline and rumors however failed to drawn people and guests to the event. None of the leading NRI businessmen in UAE participated in the program. Several issues and topics were discussed on the dias during the event, but hundreds of seats remained unoccupied as the Chief Guest delivered its address. A report in ‘Jai Hind’ stated.
Amidst all this, several questions were raised on organizing of such an event to promote one political party in Dubai, where thousands of Indians have over the years stayed together and united setting aside caste, creed, religion and political ideas. Organising of such events can definitely change the scenario among the Indian living abroad and can impact the friendly relations between Indians in place like Dubai.

Singrauli, Jul 21: A 30-year-old tribal woman was killed after three men, including a father-son duo, allegedly ran a tractor over her as a result of a land dispute in Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh, police said Sunday.
The incident took place on Friday at Dhilari village, around 60 kms from the district headquarters, and the woman, Kiran Kol, succumbed to her injuries a day later, they said.
The three accused have been identified as Bandhu Bais (55), his son Lalpati Bais (30) and their close relative Prabhakar Bais (25).
While Bandhu and Prabhakar have been arrested, search has been launched for Lalpati, police said.
"An argument broke out between the victim and the accused after the latter Friday started ploughing a farm land, claiming that it was theirs. However, Kiran objected to it saying that the land belonged to her family since the last three decades," inspector of Jiyawan police station Nehru Singh said.
Angered by her resistance, the accused knocked Kiran down with the tractor that they were using for ploughing the field, he said, adding that the trio also attacked her father-in-law, Visheshar Kol (60), with wooden sticks.
"They also punched and kicked him, leaving him injured," he added.
Following the incident, the woman was rushed to a nearby hospital. However, she died on Saturday while being transferred to another hospital, he said.
While Bandhu and Prabhakar have been arrested, efforts are on to trace Lalpati, Singh added.
They have booked for murder, attempt to murder and other offences. They have also been booked under the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, the inspector said.
