India’s Policy Options after Bangladesh’s Election

Dr. Sreeradha Datta, a Research Fellow at the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, New Delhi, has suggested that India should seriously re-examine its Bangladesh policy and offered an eight-point policy options for India.
These are:
1.Early return of democracy in Bangladesh serves India’s interest
2.Shared cultural affinity could be a liability if there is no holistic Indian policy towards Dhaka.
3.Security issues would need tangible action and not declaration of intention
4.Leaders from Bangladesh should not be allowed to use Indian territory for political campaigns
5.Unilateral trade concessions offered by India would have to be implemented and strengthened.
6.The strengthening of private entrepreneurship.
7.India should continue the current policy of remaining neutral and uninvolved.
8.India would have to create time-bound bench marks to monitor progress.
