NEW DELHI: American billionaire philanthropist George Soros has slammed the Modi government while addressing an event at the ongoing World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos and said nationalism is making headway and the "biggest setback" was seen in India.

"Nationalism, far from being reversed, made further headway. The biggest and most frightening setback occurred in India where a democratically elected Narendra Modi is creating a Hindu nationalist state, imposing punitive measures on Kashmir, a semi-autonomous Muslim region, and threatening to deprive millions of Muslims of their citizenship," said George Soros at Davos.

The billionaire investor has also hit out at the Trump government and called him an "ultimate narcissist".

Speaking on Trump, George Soros said, "President Trump is a con man and the ultimate narcissist who wants the world to revolve around him. When his fantasy of becoming president came true, his narcissism developed a pathological dimension. Indeed, he has transgressed the limits imposed on the presidency by the Constitution and has been impeached for it."

The philanthropist who made his billions in the markets, also reiterated his criticisms of other alleged autocrats. He branded as dictators both Chinese President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary - Soros' native country.

On the other hand, George Soros said he's injecting $1 billion into a new university network that the 89-year-old billionaire investor calls the "most important and most enduring project of my life."

"And I would like to see it realized while I am still around," he told journalists on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
