In an nterview to Karan Thapar for The Wire K. C. Singh said that like several foreign ministers before him Mr. Jaishankar faces a situation where grand policy decisions are made by the Prime Minister and his is a secondary role. He said as a former diplomat, Jaishankar “doesn’t have a grounding in politics”. Asked if this was his Achilles heel, K. C. Singh replied “that is obvious”.
K. C. Singh also told The Wire that Jaishankar was probably chosen as Foreign Minister because of his earlier expertise at handling China and the United States. However, K. C. Singh added, he hasn’t dealt with the Islamic world.
