Generous friend or reckless bully: Sushma Swaraj's Twitter diplomacy is a dangerous tightrope walk

In a government thin on talent and high on bluster, Sushma Swaraj is a standout for keeping her head down. India's minister of external affairs operates with quiet efficiency, enforcing prime minister Narendra Modi's expansive foreign policy.
 Quartz4 days ago Always willing to lend a hand  DNA India6 days ago Sushma_swaraj_MEA_PTI_360x270 Dhaka: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today held talks with her Bangladeshi counterpart Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali on key bilateral issues, including Land Boundary Agreement and proposed Teesta river water sharing deal, during which the Indian side also raised the matter of illegal immigration. Ms Swaraj, who arrived in Dhaka late last night, was assisted by Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh and senior ministry officials during her talks with Ali at the Foreign Office in Bangladesh’s capital. Mr Ali welcomed Ms Swaraj after which both the ministers talked about the weather condition, which was very humid in Dhaka. The two leaders talked in a restricted format before the delegation level deliberation. Though there are no pacts to be signed and no big expectations, the trip, which is termed as a “goodwill” visit, is aimed at taking forward the bilateral ties which are on a “positive trajectory” for past few years. Among other issues the meeting also discussed ways to enhance cooperation in important areas including economic. On the “touchy” issues of Land Border Agreement (LBA) and Teesta river, the Indian side may not have “clear answers” but the effort would be to assure Bangladesh side of Indian government’s positive intention. Significantly, it was BJP’s opposition, coupled with that of Trinamool Congress and Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) which prevented the previous Congress-led UPA government from formalising the land boundary agreement and signing the Teesta water sharing deal with Bangladesh. According to official sources, Ms Swaraj made a call to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to “touch-base” and tell her about the visit. The call assumes significance given that Ms Banerjee’s party Trinamool Congress prevented the previous UPA government from signing the Teesta water sharing deal. In 2011, Ms Banerjee, then an ally of the Congress-led UPA, backed out from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Bangladesh visit, opposing the Teesta water sharing treaty between India and Bangladesh, following which it was shelved. The Indian side maintains they were not going with the “shopping list” and that the minister will review the status of bilateral ties and what to expect in the coming years.
