(thank you, just see how the Congress leader and former union minister,Kapil Sibal has announced that his party will raise in the forthcoming monsoon session of Parliament the issue India’s failure in entering the 48-nation Nuclear Supply Group (NSG) thanks to the relentless opposition from China in its just concluded plenary meeting in Seoul What is more other critics have gone one step forward and this is unprecedented in naming individual officials (foreign secretary S Jaishankar and national security advisor Ajit Doval) for this “fiasco” and suggesting actions against them How to define a “diplomatic failure” For having a proper perspective the question needs to be seen in three ways First whether the “failure” is the reflection of the inadequacy of India’s overall foreign policy Secondly whether the “failure” is the first of its kind in Indian diplomatic history And thirdly whether it is a “failure” in true sense of the term It is indeed rare to find any country achieving cent percent success in its foreign policy objectives through diplomacy In fact the very art of the diplomacy presupposes that nations have to negotiate which is often protracted and makes you make compromises And in compromises you take some and give some In this sense the effectiveness of diplomacy means how near you reach your ultimate national objective without coercion (including war) In India’s case we have seen how despite Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s best efforts to befriend China the northern neighbour attacked the country in 1962 Similarly we have seen how despite Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee’s historic trip to Lahore Pakistan attacked Kargil in 1999 However despite these setbacks the fact remains that overall the Indian diplomats and the political leaderships have made the country proud in the comity of nations File image of Narendra Modi Twitter/@MEAIndia India today has more friends than foes India is a member of almost all the leading international organisations and arrangements We have effectively ended our nonproliferation-related isolations following our nuclear explosions in 1974 and 1998 In other words our overall foreign policy after the end of the Cold War has been on a sound track There have been certainly some changes in the nuances – unlike the situation in between 1947-91 the post-91 phase has seen India becoming more proactive than reactive to the global developments and in the process the country has taken risks without being afraid of failures India under Manmohan Singh signing the nuclear agreement with the United States is to be seen in this light Viewed thus it is quite natural that in the process of realising your ultimate goal (emerging as a major pole in this multipolar world) you may come across some “setbacks” in reaching some clearly identified sub- goal posts And that has happened quite a few times in the recent diplomatic history of India Let me cite some examples In 2006 Manmohan Singh officially supported the candidature of Shashi Tharoor now a Congress MP but then a senior official of the UN for the post of United Nations Secretary General His main rival was the eventual winner – the present incumbent – Ban Ki Moon then South Korea’s foreign minister India lobbied very hard for Tharoor Prime Minister Singh sent “special envoys” (former diplomats-Savitri Kunnadi VK Grover and CR Gharekhan) to various parts of the world for seeking support for Tharoor However leading countries like the United States was not convinced of Tharoor’s candidature on the ground that no permanent employee of the UN had ever contested for a post that was essentially a political appointment reflecting the unanimity of all the permanent members of the Security Council and then approved by the General Assembly In fact when Tharoor himself had met the chief US interlocutor Under Secretary of State Nicholas Burns to seek his support he was told that he did not have the requisite “political experience for the job” to be backed by the US This "agitated" Tharoor so much that he was believed to have warned Burns that the refusal to support him “would have an adverse impact on Indo-US ties” The US protested to this remark diplomatically to then foreign secretary Shyam Saran Tharoor subsequently had to bow out of the race The second example is the decision of the then HD Deve Gowda government to contest for the non-permanent seat in the UN Security council from the Asian region in 1996 against Japan Indian diplomats lobbied all over the world and the then external affairs minister IK Gujral wrote letters to 90-odd heads of government “with confidence” that they would be with India in its bid In fact after returning from a visit to the UN Gujral had apparently asserted before the then cabinet secretary TSR Subramaniam that “ Seventy-five votes at least without any doubt We may not win in the first round but we will edge out Japan in the second round " But when votes were cast in New York subsequently and the tally was announced India had secured only 40 votes It may also be noted that in 1995 (the United Front regime) India had also cut a sorry figure when the then Lok Sabha Speaker Purno A Sangma lost a bitterly-fought election to Spanish candidate Miguel A Martinez for the presidency of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) the umbrella body for law-makers across the globe Sangma’s defeat came despite our diplomats appealing to the rest of the world on the plank that India was the largest democracy in the world and ought to be given the honour of IPU Presidentship as it was preparing for the celebration of its golden jubilee year of Independence If one goes further back what happened on 2 July 1972 at Simla of a massive diplomatic setback When Zulfikar Ali Bhutto came to the Himachal capital as Pakistan’s President he was representing a “defeated” and “diminished” Pakistan India the victor had as many as 93000 Pakistani prisoners of war India had captured more than 22000 square kilometres of Pakistani territory in Sind Punjab and Pakistani occupied Kashmir And yet Bhutto went back from Shimla as a victor by taking back his POWs and regaining his territories What did Prime Minister Indira Gandhi get in return for India She got “a private assurance” from Bhutto that the line of control could gradually be converted into a de jure border And as the subsequent events proved he denied that any such promises were made by him In my considered view what happened at Shimla in 1972 was a monumental failure of Indian diplomatic strategy Viewed against this background has India’s NSG bid been a diplomatic failure that China and Pakistan say and critics like Sibal agree The fact of the matter is that India has applied for being a member and the NSG has not approved the application as yet But more important India’s application has not been rejected as yet And as suggested by nearly 40 NSG member- countries there will be now efforts to start a process towards developing a consensus on how a non-signatory to the NPT can be considered for membership None other than Rafel Grossi the chairman of the NSG told the Hindu “There was a widespread consensus in Seoul that we need have a process with a serious possibility of making progress” In fact as Grossi had told me once "When India and China can agree on CWC then why not on NSG" He is all for India joining the NSG And now he is playing an important role in building a consensus within the NSG for a possible special plenary later this year on India’s membership In other words as long as India’s application has not been formally rejected it will be inappropriate to talk of its NSG bid as a diplomatic failure That the application could not be approved in Seoul itself could at the most be described as a “setback” in the process of getting the NSG approval A failure would mean the disapproval of the application which has not been the case “The Chinese have become more mature in dealing with these setbacks caused by international relations”. As this writer had mentioned in the very first article in this series,with Indian GDP growing at about seven percent over last year and given the global recession no government let alone the one led by Modi would have been able to go for a substantial hike in Indian military expenditure In that sense the Modi government has kept the past trend of a nominal increase in budgetary allocations for the defence But in doing that it has made some changes in the method of allocations this year Traditionally there have been six headings of defence budget: Army Navy Air Force Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Ordnance Factories (OF) and Civilians (working along with the forces) This time what Jaitley has done is that he has clubbed DRDO OF and Civilians under the heading ‘Defence Misc’ and the three services under the heading ‘Defence Services’ For the first category Jaitley has provided Rs 11846584 crore whereas for the three services he has allocated Rs 22245614 core If one adds the two we have total figure of Rs 34092198 crore for defence in this year’s budget This is thus an increase of Rs 9420498 crore over the last year’s budget which stood at Rs 246727 crore It is a considerable increase in terms of percentage However as has been the case over the last years this time too the Revenue heading takes the giant share in the budgetary allocations Under the ‘Miscellaneous’ heading the revenue side is Rs 2451023 crore as against the capital front’s Rs 11622 95 crore The total allocation thus is Rs 3613318 crore out of which and this is significant to note the planned expenditure will be only Rs 450 crore the rest of the Rs 3568318 earmarked for ‘non-plan’ expenditure In other words one can say for research and development so vital for the success of DRDO there is not enough money As regards the three services the same is the case The revenue head is Rs 14386946 crore and the capital head is Rs 78586468 crore Army as usual has got the lion’s share followed by the Air Force and the Navy Army’s revenue expenditure stands at Rs 10278884 crore out of which as much as Rs 6772178 crore will be spent on pay and allowances only The Navy’s revenue head reads Rs1742479 crore (salary and allowances will take Rs 5272 core) and that of the Air Force at Rs 2365583 crore (salary and allowances will cost Rs 1207253 crore) Let us see now the capital expenditures so vital for the modernization of our armed forces Obviously the expenditure is not enough The Air Force which is terribly underequipped as far as the fighter squadrons are concerned has been allotted a meager sum of Rs17833 crore for acquisitions of new aircraft And the Navy also has been allocated a negligible sum of Rs12467 core for adding to its fleet For other items on capital expenditure for three services such as land construction medium and heavy vehicles and other equipment there is nothing significant in this budget to mention Overall much against the wishes for their respective capacity enhancement the three services have been badly let down by the finance minister particularly when the inflation for military equipment in the global market every year is 12 to 15 percent and there is a sharp fall in the value of the rupee against dollar the international currency
