India Needs A Strong Opposition Party

India Needs A Strong Opposition Party. Nobody can deny that democracy is the most prevalent form of government in the contemporary world. Indian politics is no exception. A democratic system vests the power of the citizens of a particular nation with the right to vote; to choose their representatives in the legislature. The primary reason why democracy is thriving as a form of government is that it minimizes the exploitation of power.

India Chooses the Side of Peace: S. Jaishankar 

This Wednesday, External affairs minister S Jaishankar declared that India does not, in any way condone the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Punjab’s Bhagwant Mann government has no time to waste because it faces significant obstacles. 

The Aam Aadmi Party won a historic victory in Punjab in only its second assembly election, led by Bhagwant Mann, who was sworn in as chief minister on Wednesday, owing to widespread dissatisfaction with conventional parties and an overwhelming desire for change.

For the past 70 years, the Congress and Shiromani Akali Dal have alternated in power, failing to address the structural biases and inadequacies that have contributed to the state's current predicament, favoring instead to paper over them with short-term gestures and initiatives with an eye on the next election.  ...

Amid the Ukraine crisis, India does well to strengthen ties with Australia and Japan while also drawing red lines with Beijing. 

"No country should pursue its so-called absolute security at the expense of other countries' security," Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng said in a barely-veiled attack on the Quad, which includes India, Australia, Japan, and the United States. He drew a link between the situation in Ukraine, which he claims is the product of "NATO's eastward expansion plan," and the various provocations Beijing perceives in the Indo-Pacific. The analogy isn't valid. After all, it is China that has asserted itself in the area and abroad, frequently at the "cost of the security of other countries." Since the conclusion of WWII, US forces and allies have been present in the region, and unlike NATO, the Quad is not a military alliance. Le may be taken seriously in Delhi as a former ambassador to India...
