Hillary held her own

July 26 2011

This time when the American Foreign Minister Hillary Clinton came to India, apart from three UPA ministers and Sonia Gandhi, she also met Opposition leader Sushma Swaraj and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. The message is clear – America is considering alternate political possibilities other than the UPA. Hillary gave her speech not in Delhi but in Chennai. She said that this region had two super powers – Russia and China and India is also rising as one. This is the reason the US supports trade relations with India and wants that India should take its trade from the east (Singapore, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Malaysia, Bangladesh) to central Asia. Hillary called upon the farmers and said that instead of the east, they should now sell their produce to Kazakhstan. Kudos to the American thinking – two birds with one stone.
