It is time that Indian government takes main Opposition Party BJP in confidence like in yesteryears when the then Congress Prime Minister PV Narsimha Rao did by entrusting leadership of Indian delegation at a crucial international summit to the then Opposition Leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee rather than his own Foreign Minister.
India has always been united in matters relating to external aspects like Congress supported NDA government during Kargil war, and veteran Jansangh leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee crowning Indira Gandhi as ‘Durga’ for her leading nation to victory in 1971 Indo-Pak war.
