Democ­rAcy in in­diA is not brit­tle

The Sunday Guardian - - & Comment Analysis -

Sir, With ref­er­ence to Pankaj Vohra’s

(2 De­cem­ber), the au­thor has rightly pointed out that prompted by sup­port­ers of the rul­ing party, sev­eral TV chan­nels tried to de­code Im­ran’s praise for Sidhu as a con­spir­acy by Pak­istan to dis­lodge Naren­dra Modi as Prime Min­is­ter. Noth­ing is more out­landish given that democ­racy in In­dia is not brit­tle and Modi is the PM be­cause he en­joys both the back­ing of In­dian Par­lia­ment and the peo­ple. Im­ran’s in­ten­tions of push­ing the peace agenda ap­pears, on face value, to be gen­uine, but till at­tacks by Pak­istani trained ter­ror­ists con­tinue on In­dian ter­ri­tory, no for­ward move­ment will take place.
