There is a suspicious silence by Moscow on Modi's ascent to power. No congratulatory phone-calls by its leaders, not even a 100-word article on Russia Today website, or 30-second piece on RT television news. Does this confirm Subramanian Swamy's assertion that Sonia was a KGB plant into Indian polity? Is Russia worried that with Modi's pitch for indigenisation of large-scale small-arms manufacturing, and most low-tech military equipment, and with VK Singh (advocate of indigenous development/procurement) winning, Russia's exports to India will not only be starved, but also it could face competition from India in worldwide small-arms market? Does Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu giving Modi a congratulatory call even before the first leads were registered as wins on the 16th, indicate that NDA is preferring Israel to Russia for high-tech equipment imports?
