To counter OBOR, India pushes its own idea of connectivity to the world
NEW DELHI: When India stood up against China's OBOR in May this year, it inserted a new thinking to the whole idea of connectivity as an instrument of foreign policy. Until then, connectivity was how China would build its way through Asia and Africa using highways and rail networks — its excess capacity and capital creating fabulous infrastructure and debt underbellies.
India, too, used connectivity to further its own foreign policy, but not to the same effect. But as China continues to grow, connectivity as a foreign policy is being perceived as a certain threat by countries like India and Japan.
Therefore, since this summer, India has pushed its own connectivity mantra with most of its international partners, but with very different rules from China.

Modi ji a great politician and a great visionary. But in India, secularists Communists Islamists and media want to finish him. They don't want to see India as a strong nation.

It was courageous step to deny OBOR conceived by China. Modi took firm stand to have connectivity, one country at a time.
