India Rejects $100m Flood Disaster Fund Offer By The United Arab Emirates

India on Wednesday rejected an offer by the United Arab Emirates government to give $100 million to the disaster relief fund for flood-stricken Kerala state.

“In line with the existing policy, the government is committed to meeting the requirements for relief and rehabilitation through domestic efforts,” said a foreign ministry statement. 

The Kerala state chief minister called for “high level” talks with the national government so the UAE money could be accepted.
India has a record of refusing foreign aid after disasters. Foreign money could only be donated through Indian-origin individuals or foundations

If it's back home Nigeria we all know the story....

Nigerian politicians will grab the offer fast and even ask for more, consequences or no consequences, our politicians only care about themselves and not Nigerians...

Such action promotes the images of a country and it people, foreign aid is equal to slavery and oppression and no serious government will ever accept it no matter where it's coming from bravo india
