Modi in Burma exposes links between genocide & neoliberal scorched earth economics

Modi arriving in Burma (PTI) Sept 5 2017

Narendra Modi arrived in Burma today for a two-day visit. Why let a genocide deter him when he has several matters to discuss with the junta, including his plan to deport 40,000 Rohinga refugees from India. His primary concerns will be mutual security issues & the $484 million Kaladan multi-modal transport projects connecting Burma to India. One project will connect the Indian seaport of Kolkata with Sittwe seaport in Arakan state, Burma; another will link Sittwe seaport via river & road routes to Mizoram, a state in northeast India.

The connections between genocide & neoliberal scorched earth economics begin to emerge in greater clarity & ignominy.
