    Imagine: Indian Foreign Policy Under Prime Minister Modi | The Pulse | The Diplomat

    Why is there no mention of how India under NaMo would interact with China?

    He is nowhere near being a PM.

    BJP has to win and that is a million dollar question!

    I wonder why all around India and the world have gone perky!

    Are they suggesting that India will vote him in?

    Is it that easy?

    Polls indicate that he is the most popular leader.

    But then, the polls also indicate that the BJP is nowhere in a position to form a Govt!

    In times of uncertainty people will vote for the most popular face. NDA needs to get 230+ seats in the election.

    NAMO has criticised Indian Foreign Policy under UPA govt. AFAIK, he is a hawk and will not take things lying down like UPA did in Depsang/LOC or killing of Tamil Fishermen by Srilanka. He wants India to become the leader of the world thru knowledge and strong robust military infrastructure.

    1. All depends on co-alition partners, the number of seats BJP wins, and the prevailing international atmosphere.
    2. BJP historically is high on rhetoric, low on action. Kargil, Kandhar hijacking, Parliament Attack etc.
    3. Most importantly if Indian economy is booming, nobody will oppose us. If we are in a recession, the West will chastise us.

    All observations are 100% on the mark, especially the second one. BJP (even though I am going to vote for it), is more gas than mettle. & That's really sad.

    It was not BJP but that idiot called Charpayee who is responsible for holding back assault on Pakistan in the aftermath of Parliament. The BJP & RSS had wanted him to finish off pakistan. He came under US pressure and stopped our armed forces.

    Really, Bajpayee ? If that's true, it is extremely inane & unfortunate. That was the perfect time to put Pak in their place.

    That was a missed opportunity that might not present itself again, in foreseeable future.

    I somehow despise these newspaper articles which write the stuff with great bias. The moment it has become clear that NAMO is now unstoppable, a new game about international relations and NAMO effect on them has started to malign him. As i posted earlier that our border problem with China is a product of wrongly following the maps of 1899 which wrongly depict Aksai Chin as our territory. the present LAC in Aksai Chin is broadly what used to be the border of J&K state with Tibet. china has no claim in Arunachal but they use it as a counter to our claims. We need to settle our border dispute with China asap and for that we need to educate our people about the truth rather than fool them with rhetoric. Chinese are not Pakistanies and can be relied upon to honour their agreements.
    Regarding Pakistan, there is only one solution and that is Military.

    Are you sure, Sir? I mean, are there any objective reasons backing this assertion. I do not know much about this & would like to be educated.

    Is that really needed, Sir? IMHO, there are alternative strategies that can be leveraged to contain & have them implode from within, with minimum collateral damage.

    Yes, arms race, use of RAW etc are other ways but remember whenever they face a real threat of dismemberment due to their own reasons, they will attack India to keep their flock together as they did in 1971.

    Kargil was indeed the best chance to finish Pak for once and for all but we lost it thinking Pak should be given a chance of Aman, but it was a foolish thought. NAMO needs more than 200 seats to take a tough stance against Pak otherwise I dont think BJP will be in position to do that.

    All surveys regarding prospects of BJP were done proir to naming of NAMO as election campaign chief. Now that it has been done, wait for fresh surveys, you will see the big swing.

    I don't think BJP will get a majority on thier own, but the recent Headlines Today survey shows around 220/230 for NDA with Modi as PM. I guess, by the election time, this number would rise by another 15-20. So with NDA with 235/250 seats. With AIDMK's support the tally is around 275/280. I believe in such a scenario, many smaller parties will also join NDA to take the tally to something close to 300

    Such a situation should allow Modi to take tough decisions on Pakistan and other nations (Except SL-Tamil issue)

    Agree, With Modi named as poll panel chief and his planned extensive tour of India, the tally should go up by another 15-20 seats.
