"But in Singh’s invitation was attached a rider: vote in the next general election scheduled for 2014, but also bring along some investments."

"......... We are working on this issue and I sincerely hope that they will get a chance to vote by the time of the next regular general election.”


Well, let's see how the words are put into action. Some qns.
Would it be a postal ballet? Would it change the results? Whom do we chose? Lesser of the number of evils?

If I were still in India - Indian Citizen - then this would have discomfort me. Outsiders should not get a say in choosing Indian Leader. You have left the shore - stay there n choose your own. NRI would not know suffering of Common Man. Its another story that most elected MPs are not doing much but atleast some outsiders have not chosen them.

I totally agree. Only exclusive Indian citizens (not even so-called dual-citizens/OCI) should have the right to vote or run for public office.
On the issue of safety and security of Indian overseas workers and students, Singh they were a top priority of his government.
Really?

I think this move was overdue

When some left on their own, some were compelled to move in search of a better job. However having seen the outside world I belive a NRI is more grown mentally than a resident Indian, we will therefore hopefully be demanding a better system and accountability.

I only hope there are safeguards to check the abuse, so that some business or vested interest people won't hijack the country one way or the other
