The 揘ew Framework?isn抰 going down well with the Indian public. The Left parties, whose support is vital for Singh, strongly oppose it. A subordinate patron-client relationship with the United States, which is in search of a global Empire, will be resented by many Indians, who are proud of their country抯 history of independence in foreign policy making and autonomy in international affairs.

Singh is embarking on a gamble. It is unlikely that he will be able to sell the 搉ew compact?easily to the domestic public.
