Not all families love and live happily ever after.of a nation in general and its leadership in particularis an intangible but important element in the conduct of international relations Until very recentlyDr Singh derived much mileage as the man who launched India on the path of economic rise in the early 1990s During his first term as the prime ministerDr Singh got much deserved credit for seeking to elevate Indias international political standing in the world and reclaim its rightful place in the global nuclear order In the normal course of circumstancesthe prime ministers New York trip should have marked a fresh season of foreign policy initiatives from Delhi Insteadwhat we have is a widespread perception that the UPA government has run out of political steam A series of scams that rocked the nation in the last few monthsthe maladroit response to the anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare and the paralysis on the economic reform front have generated the impression that UPA 2 has lost the will to govern The recent incidents of terror in Mumbai and Delhi have made the government look helpless The despair in Delhi is no longer focused only on the inability of the government to regain the political initiative at home It extends to the foreign policy domain as well When leaders find the going tough on the domestic frontthey get going on foreign policy More often than notit is easier to negotiate with governments of other countries than with your political opponents at home Prime ministers and presidents tend to have a measure of autonomy in the conduct of foreign policy and they can put it to good use Dr Singhs government has just found out that its political space at home is too constricted to make big moves on foreign policy Barely a day before he travelled to Dhaka to rewrite the relationship with a very important neighbourthe government allowed itself to be ambushed by Mamata Banerjeethe chief minister of West Bengal If Banerjee has stunned India with the narrowness of her visionit is the UPA government that must shoulder much of the blame for the debacle That this failure came after nearly two years of intense preparations for the Dhaka visit underlines the gravity of Dr Singhs problems Just a year agothe heads of state and government from all over the world were tripping over each other as they trooped in and out of Delhiseeking economic favours and promising political support on issues dear to Indias heart Nowas they look at Indiafrom outsidemany in the world are becoming sceptical about the ability of the UPA government to deliver If the current government is not seen as a credible interlocutoroutsiders can only get impatient for the next set of rulers to take charge of the Delhi Durbar Is the UPA 2 a bad movie that India and the world must simply wait to come to an end Or is there a way the Congress and Dr Singh can change the script If there is one silver lining amidst the dark clouds over Dr Singhit is the fact he is not the only world leader doing badly at home Barring the Chinese communistsmost of the leaders from major nations are in a funk Western liberal democracies are finding it hard to come out of the economic crisis that has enveloped them at the end of the last decade From the United States to Australiafrom European nations to Japanleaders are struggling to cope with difficult challenges at home Many of them are facing deeply polarised political debates at home In comparisonDr Singh might have a lot more going for him With a little bit of political determinationthe prime minister can still turn the fortunes of his government around and with it the growing negative perceptions of India In politicsit is never too late to fight back and the prime ministers trip to New York might be a good moment to start In his engagement with the various leaders on the margins of the UN General AssemblyDr Singh needs to put out three broad messages One is that the UPA is looking beyond mere survival and is ready to govern in the remaining period nearly three years of its tenure TwoDr Singh must signal that his government will do all it can to keep India on the path of high economic growth rates If India is seen as slowing down on the economic frontthe international enthusiasm for engaging India will begin to erode quickly FinallyDr Singh must reaffirm Indias commitment to contributing vigorously to the management of international security and addressing the many current economic and other challenges confronting the world In the last few monthsthere has been a growing sense around the world that UPA 2 is returning to the foreign policy posturing of the past and abandoning the new foreign policy ideas that won so much admiration during the first term of UPA If he does broadcast these three messagesDr Singh may not find it too hard to reclaim some of his personal credibility and the nations faltering reputation To do thatDr Singh needs strong support from the leadership of the Congress partywhich is in the danger of squandering Indias current opportunities on the world stage The writer is a senior fellow at the Centre for Policy [email protected] For all
