Bibek Debroy, a member of Niti Aayog and chairman of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council and Sadanand Dhume a journalist based in Washington, D.C. who writes on Asian affairs debate on twitter which started with a tweet by Bibek Debroy about possible changes in the H-1B work visa rules in the United States.
The entire tweet exchange is reproduced below for the benefit of the readers.
If H-1B rules are given a tweak,
Some futures may turn downright bleak.
Waiting for the card to turn green
They will have to deport the scene,
Without a paddle and up the creek.
Amidst the sobs,
About looming H-1B probs,
I have a query,
That we should not bury,
Why hasn’t Modi Sarkar created jobs?
Is your construction.
I thought you knew
That data are askew,
But what can one do about your self-induction?
Let’s not blame the data,
On a rather pressing matter,
Hard to make the case,
That jobs have grown apace,
As promised by dear neta.
You are the one who made a case
Admit you lost some face.
If you desert
What you did assert,
You have tripped on your own shoelace.
This is not about you or me,
We’re discussing the economy.
But thanks for your time,
Always fun to rhyme,
Even if we don’t agree
Indeed not about you and me.
But as analysts we should agree,
When data are old
It is best not to be bold.
And yes, enjoyed the wit and repartee.
Maybe Trump will read and change his style . Here’s hoping....
