Has Manmohan Singh blundered on foreign policy by skipping the CHOGM meet?
The Prime Minister isn't going to Sri Lanka to attend the CHOGM Summit, ostensibly due to pressure from various Tamil groups protesting the killing of Tamil minorities in the Island country. External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid will be heading the delegation instead. Is Manmohan Singh's decision a bad one for India's foreign policy, and has he compromised the country's foreign policy interests in the region, given that its two rivals China and Pakistan have made considerable headway in the same area? Should the Prime Minister have ignored the protests and gone to Colombo where his raising concerns about the Sri Lankan genocide before global leaders would have carried more weight? Or did he do the right thing by pandering to the views of Tamils in India? We look forward to your responses.
