Today, Carnegie India released its first publication–a policy brief by the center’s director, Raja Mohan. In the brief, Raja outlines how Prime Minister Narendra Modi can sustain India’s Pakistan dialogue in the wake of the recent Pathankot terrorist attacks. Raja concludes:
Vajpayee had the political will to seek a normalization of India’s relations with Pakistan. He did not have the time. Manmohan Singh had the time and inclination but not the internal freedom of action. Fate may have dealt Modi better cards than Vajpayee and Singh. He should not be afraid of playing them.
