    You dont have to extend an invite to anyone. All you have to make sure is come out of the insecurities you have ensure there is communal harmony. After that make sure your pokicies are right. And third, stop favouring just the Ambani's and the Adani.

    When your central government gives more importance to Adani, Ambani and Baba Ramdev, then why would others want to invest to turn loss. Giving only importance to your close aids will turn the businness into monopoly. And monopoly is dangerous to the progress of a country as well customers have to pay huge price.
