True to tradition, latest talk of India-Pak dialogue has met with mixed response. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has earned the reputation of blowing hot and cold on Pakistan. He created history when he invited Nawaz Sharief to his swearing-in-ceremony. Thereafter, Modi has been inconsistent even as his supporters claim he has a clear plan up his sleeve. Clearly the verdict on his Pakistan policy isn’t out yet given no perceptible change in the ground situation. There, however, is an interesting difference this time: External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj will take direct charge when she visits Pakistan tomorrow. Swaraj has done pretty well in her role given that the Prime Minister has hogged the limelight on foreign policy issue. Swaraj would of course go by the overall brief but here is her big moment to tell Pakistan that India means business as never before.
