India Tracking Situation In Pakistan


New Delhi: With the tension mounting between the military and the civilian government following the dismissal of Pakistan’s defence secretary, India is closely watching developments in the neighbouring country with which it has revived a peace process only months ago.

Government sources said that New Delhi was keeping a close watch on the fast-evolving situation and speculation of an impending coup that could also impact the revived peace process between the two countries. 

India resumed the peace process in February last year after a hiatus of more than twenty months following the 26/11 Mumbai carnage that had frozen the dialogue between the two nuclear-armed subcontinental neighbours. 

In November, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yousaf Raza Gilani vowed to write “a new chapter” in the history of the relations between the two countries and resolved to make the dialogue more purposeful and productive. 

But all these plans could go awry if the political turmoil in Pakistan spins out of control, leading to a coup.
