Democracy: A strategy in Nehru’s foreign policy
Democracy informed Nehru’s foreign policy, as he routinely informed Lok-sabha about his initiatives related to the foreign policy of India to achieve greater legitimacy in favor of his leadership as well as his foreign and domestic policies. Thus, democracy of Nehru had had a strategic significance for his foreign policy. But the basic research question is why his strategic significance failed to solve India- China dispute and other matters related to external and internal affair? Thus, to find the answer of these following quarries, we went through several biographies and original writings of Nehru, we found that Nehru’s failure were not rooted in his democratic strategies. Thus, the hypothesis is that Nehru’s failures were due to the inconsistencies present within the philosophical premises which formed the framework of Nehru’s foreign policy.
