Quote of the Day II: Worth in Punjab

Filed under: india,Politics — danylmc @ 2:50 pm

“My personal commitment to Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal is that New Zealand will be committed to improve efficiency and productivity of the farmers in the state by providing them technology transfer in agriculture, horticulture and dairy sector,” said Dr Richard Worth, Minister of Crown, New Zealand.

Worth said Tata, Kingfisher and Reliance are household names in New Zealand. “Ten per cent of the total population of our country, around two million, comprises Indians. Of this, 10 per cent, around 1.22 lakh (122,000), are Punjabis.

New Zealand committed to help farmers of Punjab; Indian Express, February 28, 2009.



  1. “Ten per cent of the total population of our country, around two million, comprises Indians.”

    Either the population of New Zealand has exploded to 20 million and nobody told me, or the total population of New Zealand has shrunk to two million and nobody told me. Somewhere in there are several mistakes or several lies, or both.

  2. Sounds like he was telling porkies all round. Most New Zealanders have no idea what Tata, Reliance, and Kingfisher sell.

    Household names? Hardly. That isn’t a problem, but it is if he’s saying they are.

  3. Tata grows on your teeth and you put it on fish. Reliance is well known as Del Boy used to drive one. Kingfisher is a great beer.

    He’s world famous in India. Epsom, not so much.
