|India||CHURCH GROUPS HAVE MIXED FEELINGS ABOUT CLINTON VISIT|
US President Bill Clinton's visit to India has drawn mixed reactions from Church people and voluntary groups.
Fr Donald D'Souza, deputy secretary general of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of India, said that India should welcome Clinton since he is head of a nation, although there are areas in which the Church and other groups might disagree with the United States.
Jesuit Father Ambrose Pinto, head of the Indian Social Institute, said it is very shameful for a government that supports self-reliance to welcome "the symbol of multinationals and capitalism."
Clinton arrived in New Delhi on Monday for a six-day visit of Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.
