Questions In Pakistan

  • BJP’s track record in pursuing ties with Pakistan is good, but the Modi phenomenon is fully understood here
  • The Manmohan Singh-led UPA, despite promises of improving ties, was reluctant to adopt necessary policies
  • Will a new Indian government expand the Composite Dialogue beyond the present narrative of 26/11?
  • Will the ‘Gujarat Model’ lead to further Muslim/Pakistan-bashing or to a stress on economic development?
  • Can a BJP government make concessions to Pakistan as well as garner domestic support for such policies?
