India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit the pearl of Africa on 24th / July 2018, one of his planned activities while in Uganda is to meet with the Indian business community which has over 200,000 members.

The organizing committee which is led by Karia Pradeep is spearheading Modi’s preparation meeting with Indian Business community.

Even Babu Ramesh is heading the finance committee

Ramesh’s committee was assigned to raise at least 1 billion shilling to help facilitate the meeting with Modi.

In one of the meetings, they agreed that each business community group with less 100 members will contribute approximately 2 million shillings while a group with more than 100 members will contribute 5 million shs. Individuals will also be contributing some money.

Hundreds of millions shs have already been contributed, however, some members demand for accountability, according to the sources.

The Indian High Commissioner to Uganda Hon Shankar Ravi has reportedly been cited in the disagreement with allegations that he’s covering the finance committee from being investigated.

Ravi has been accused of linking up with former Rubaga North Member of parliament, Katongole Singh to stop those asking for accountability.

Singh Katongole told Nile post that he’s innocent and that some people are just dragging his name into finance issues, he said he’s not in finance committee, that for him is a protocol and security member.

Modi will hold a bilateral talk with president Museveni and he’s also expected to open a convention centre for Indian community in Entebbe.
