Should the US mediate in the India-Pakistan dispute?

Any settlement with Pakistan won't last unless it comes with big power guarantees, feels Shekhar Gupta. There are three words voters the world over love now, and three they detest.

'The UPA was never soft on Pakistan, terrorists and even China, but Sonia Gandhi's Congress rightly earned a "soft" image on issues of hard national interest, leaving the field open for Modi to take it and wrap it around with his implicit Hindutva,' says Shekhar Gupta. At a public conversation with me last month, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said several things that wouldn't have made his party happy. The first was his reply to a question on his party's suspicion of electronic voting ...
