Foreign funds in 2024 elections- a major factor for BJP’s loss of over 60 seats

Billionaire George Soros indicated in his speech at Munich in March 2023, that he wanted to establish democracy in India and help Indians. However, he did not clearly explain how he would achieve this. One thing is clear: the billionaire is notorious for allegedly pumping funds into elections in the USA and many other countries. Soros has made it clear on many occasions that he doesn’t like Trump. He even made controversial statements, calling President Trump a conman (fraud). Later, a report came in that Soros donated USD 128 million (₹1,069 crore) to the Democratic Party against Trump.

The Hungarian government too has expressed concerns about George Soros’s excessive interference in their country’s electoral process. They allege that he funds opposition parties to destabilize democratic countries and establish governments of his choice all across the world by investing millions.

On many occasions, politicians in Pakistan have stated their desire to see Modi thrown out of power and backed Congress led alliances. They have expressed their support for AAP and Congress on television. Several countries, such as China, Canada, Turkey, Maldives, and Qatar, have become officially critical of the way the Indian government has protected its interests and sovereignty on the global stage. The Modi government removed 41 Canadian diplomats from India in response to Canada’s groundless accusations against India.

The Modi government reportedly turned down an offer to negotiate with the vaccine manufacturer Pfizer because the company rejected local trials and demanded legal immunity. This means that if someone develops health complications and dies after taking the Pfizer vaccine in India, the company could not legally be held responsible if it received legal immunity from the government.

Politicians like Arvind Kejriwal and Telengana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao came out in support of Pfizer and mounted pressure on the Modi government to grant permissions to the Pfizer company. Reportedly, the vaccine has caused deaths in countries where it was approved. Local people in fact protested on the road against Pfizer. Why did Delhi CM Kejriwal advocate for such a controversial vaccine? What connection does he have with the pharmaceutical company? Needless to say, a good number of foreign players are upset with the Indian government and want interference in Indian politics by any means necessary.

With the help of two researchers Elvish Yadav revealed in his video how YouTuber Dhruv Rathee is linked to billionaire George Soros and other anti-India forces. Elvish provides tons of evidence to support his claims. Rathee’s videos exaggerate the danger to democracy in India. Interestingly, this aligns with George Soros’s speech in which he indicated that he wished to establish democracy in India.

A certain Intelligence agency has reportedly gained access to conversations of at least 17 YouTube employees in India. The employees allegedly received instructions from their paying ‘bosses’ to alter YouTube’s algorithms and shadow ban channels that are likely to admire the government’s work. Several YouTubers who criticized opposition parties have experienced discriminatory treatment. On the contrary, if YouTubers praise Modi’s work, their videos were demonetized, organic reach was restricted, and some even faced channel suspensions citing vague community guidelines.

YouTuber Ajeet Bharti shared his experience on platform X (formerly Twitter), and said, “In the last 45 days, YouTube has demonetized 35 videos and remonetized 32 of them after 2-3 days. However, within 2-3 days, the videos become completely irrelevant. If they had to remonetize 32 videos after appeals, this suggests YouTube was wrong every time they demonetized my videos.” Bharti believes that this is a “shut-up policy” by YouTube to harass anyone and everyone expressing their views in support of their favourite party.

He emphasizes that everyone has the right to support or oppose the government, but YouTube must not suppress one side’s voice and promote the other’s narrative. Journalist Rohan Dua alleges that “YouTube employees explicitly wrote and spoke instructions on how to shadow ban any neutral coverage and promote anti-Modi content.” The authority is likely to conduct a thorough investigation. It would be interesting to determine if these employees have any links to foreign funders like George Soros.

OpenAI on its official website informed that a certain firm was found using its AI model to generate anti-Modi and pro-Congress content to be circulated on social media to manipulate voters. “The people behind the operation used our models to generate articles and comments that were then posted across multiple platforms, notably Instagram, Facebook, and websites associated with this operation. In May, they began generating comments that focused on India, criticizing the ruling BJP party and praising the opposition Congress party,” it said.

OpenAI said it does not allow its models to be used in a deceptive way to alter electoral outcomes in favor of one particular party. The AI company indicated that Congress and opposition parties had hired Israeli firm STOIC essentially to run a misinformation campaign in the country and indoctrinate the masses against the ruling party.
If you connect the dots, they lead to a convincing conclusion that some political parties in India and foreign forces appear to have collaborated to oust the ruling BJP party. George Soros pledged $1 billion (₹8,170Cr) to fight nationalist parties like the BJP and “actual dictators” like PM Modi. This is a dangerous trend being used by Indian politicians to win elections, it will surely jeopardize the nation’s sovereignty
