KEY POINTS

·         Minor issues, unaddressed, have become festering irritants in our relations with several neighbours.

·         Moreover, India’s failure to contain China’s growing influence on its neighbours is a major reason for shrinking India’s influence in its neighbourhood.

·         Maldives – India's ties with Maldives has started degrading after it criticised the Abdulla Yameen government for imposing a 45-day emergency earlier this year.

·         More inclination of the present government in Maldives towards China had eventually led to an FTA with China.

·         Further souring of ties came through return of Indian Helicopters, Denial of visa to Indians.

·         Nepal – Concerns over enhancing the constitution’s provisions for Nepal’s plains-based Madhesi population had led to India’s unofficial blockade of Nepal in 2015.

·         It gave rise to a massive wave of anti-Indian sentiments in the country.

·         It leads to the pro-China leader, taking over premiership in Nepal.

·         Bangladesh – The positive developments in Indo-Bangladesh relations have been soured by domestic politics driven by communal sentiments.

·         The stand taken on the Rohingya issue is a case in point.

Way Ahead

·         India's neighbourhood policy needs a thorough review and a new and sustained focus.

·         India can play a meaningful regional and global role only if it manages its own periphery well.

Good attempt. Try to explain the reasons why such policy is losing momentum and link it with examples. Keep writing.
