    This revelations that Morarji Desai as the PM of India leaked details of RAW network in Pakistan to then Dictator Zia ul Haq, is shocking to say the least. That this was done as a part of vendetta against the former PM Indira Gandhi who Desai believed had used RAW during emergency. Not only this he cut down the funding of RAW drastically.

    This is actually fairly well known, was recently back in the news during terror boat incident

    Here is more:

    Of India’s intelligence and un-intelligent men

    Two Indian prime ministers must take the blame for contributing enormously to a thorough dismantling of RAW’s assets in Pakistan. The first one, Morarji Desai, the only Indian to receive NishanePakistan, Pakistan’s highest civilian award.Coinciding with his assumption to power in 1977, a detailed list of Indian intelligence assets in Pakistan fell in the hands of the ZiaulHaq regime. The Pakistani dictator, who kept regular touch with Desai over phone to discuss ‘the effectiveness of urine as a medicine’, took little time to ensure that the assets are neutralised through a clinical process of ruthless killing, torture and also by turning them into highly effective double agents. By 1979, Desai had changed his position on Pakistan, telling the then US ambassador that India would smash its neighbour should it test a nuclear bomb. But the damage had already been done. As the CIA took the ISI under the wings to counter the Soviets in Afghanistan in the 1980s, thereby augmenting the capacities of the agency enormously, RAW struggled to maintain a decent network in Pakistan.

    The second landmark was reached in 1997, with Inder Kumar Gujral becoming India’s 12th prime minister.Gujral, credited with formulating India’s Look East policy, was also the initiator of a benign strategy that took a conscious decision to close RAW’s covert action unit. This policy, which mistakenly interpreted intelligence to be an offensive wing of the government, resulted not only in the downgrading of RAW’s abilities in Pakistan, but also prohibited it from cultivating new assets.

    Gujral appeared to conform with the popular Pakistani notion that India’s external outlook is determined by a troika of the MEA, Indian army and RAW. For a pacifist policy to succeed, the stranglehold of this ‘evil’ nexus had to be broken and RAW was found to be the easiest among the three to be weakened. Under Gujral, who believed that “both India and Pakistan should jointly fight the forces of colonialism”, the agency lost its entire ability to seek information, let alone be the source of subversive activities inside Pakistan. Gujral’s initiative, however, didn’t stop Islamabad from blaming RAW for having engineered a blast on a crosscountry passenger train in the Sindh province that killed 26 people and an explosion in a theatre that killed three people in June 1998. Gujral’s tenure came to an end in November 1997.

    However, his legacy lived on. Prior to the 1999 peace journey to Lahore by prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, informal pressure was put on RAW to refrain from projections indicating threats from Pakistan. Under the UPA government, at least till 2009, months after the 2008 Mumbai attacks, RAW did not have a single covert action specialist at the senior level. Undoubtedly, RAW’s operations have suffered tremendously due to political myopia as much as due to the appointment of some of the most undeserving chiefs in the recent past.

    RAW could have sabotaged pakistans nuclear programme, but this guys action has changed history for worse. Political Terrorist should be an apt title for this guy with IK gujral coming close too. I wonder what Arwind Kejriwal would do if he becomes PM.

    Is there a theory that all those who attained a position in the government out of the " Nehru family" were traitors, useless and sold the interests of the country ?

    Immediately after becoming defence minister the first thing parrikar did was to criticize ik gujral for closing down RAW assets.

    These Janta Parivar types are the worst sort of politicians you will see. Absolutely without any moral, very corrupt and have used the religion and caste card to remain relevant even today.
