Pragati November 2007: While the window is still open

The Indian National Interest Review

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

It’s an honour for Pragati and INI to have K Subrahmanyam to write the opening perspective piece in this month’s issue. Arguing that it is premature to dismiss the deal as dead, he writes:

The discussions between UPA and the Left are only a device to buy time for both sides before they reach the inevitable conclusion that they must part company and face the electorate…Since the most significant outcome of the deal not going through is the national and international humiliation of the UPA, Mrs Sonia Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh, it is not likely to happen. There may be delays but not an abrogation of the deal. [Pragati]
