What did the Indian Communists discuss with Musharraf other than their shared goal of not letting India become a superpower? A new proposal for solving the Kashmir problem was generally discussed between CPI (M) General Secretary Harkishan Singh Surjeet and General Musharraf. This proposal is called “China Formula” not because the Indian Communists open umbrellas when it rains in China, but since it is based on the formula followed by India and China to solve their border problems.
One thought on “The China formula”
Well, if you think the status-quo is the best thing that can happen, there isn’t much to argue about. But, if you are looking forward to a better situation, both countries have to try to normalize the relations by other means – which is exactly what Surjeet said. India is never going to standby when there is infiltration from Pakistan – and Pakistan is never going to stop meddling in Kashmir. And both countries are going to deal with it probably the same way it has been dealt with it now. But, it doesn’t mean that we can’t play cricket or have better trade relations. Actually, if we have good relations otherwise, things can improve in Kashmir as well. WE need such bold and decisive steps if you want to see any improvement anytime soon.
