INDO -AFGHAN POLITICAL RELATION

UNDER MODI GOVERNMENT

Afroz Ahmad* Najish**

 
ABSTRACT
In the General Election held in 2014, India once again broke its own record by conducting the largest democratic exercise in history. The victorious Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won a majority in the Lok Sabha becoming the first party to do so since 1984 and the firstever non-Indian National Congress Party to rule India’s federal government without need for coalition partners. During the election campaign, Modi blamed Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) that it has failed to endure friendly and cooperative relations with India’s neighbors. He also made promise that if BJP will come to power, his leadership will take sufficient steps to revive friendly relations with neighbors. Since coming into power, Modi government has been continuously seeking to fulfill those promises by forging friendly ties with India’s neighboring states. This paper seeks to examine the continuity and changes that have taken place in foreign policy of India towards Indo-Afghanistan relations under Modi Government
