Can India rely on US after this?
It was the second time in less than two years that the US had let down India. First, for the UN General Secretary (Shashi Tharoor) post for succeeding Kofi Annan and now to head the International Monetary Fund's Monetary and Financial Committee -- the IMF's influential policymaking body. The candidate was none other than India's Finance Minister P Chidambaram. Also the US has been dangling the carrot of UN's Security Council permanent membership. The big question is; The N-deal. Will this deal be in the interest of the people of India, the emerging super power of Asia?
