Modi's test: WTO threatens India's food security Source: India stands alone at WTO talks - The Times of India India has a set up plan to guarantee food security to its citizens. Why should this at all be on the negotiating table? India should not relent. Negotiating India's food security would have adverse effects. India could face famines, and thousands could die. Indian food prices affect inflation. Unbridled inflation could cause massive unrest all over the country. India is being arm-twisted into making concessions for countries whose agricultural products are non-competitive. India's food shortage would put it at the mercy of other countries, and thus influence its foreign policy. Will Narendra Modi bend? Or will he prove to be a man of steel? If required, should India walk out of WTO, and G-20?
