K. Alan Kronstadt, a specialist in South Asian affairs at the Congressional Research Service (CRS), was the coordinator of its September 1 report on India that named Gujarat CM Narendra Modi as a potential prime ministerial candidate in 2014. Excerpts from a conversation with Ashish Kumar Sen.

Your report has created ripples in India. Are you surprised?

It’s not uncommon for the content of CRS reports to receive notice in the countries discussed therein. Such content is sometimes used selectively and countervailing content is downplayed or dismissed such that the resulting reporting can be inaccurate or misleading. This seems to be the case with some coverage of the September 1 India report.
