The Indian market put the losses of the previous session behind and resumed the post-Budget upswing after the Congress and the DMK softened their tough stance and reopened dialogue on the contentious seat-sharing issue for the Tamil Nadu elections.
Over the weekend, the DMK had said that it would withdraw all its Union Ministers but chose to defer the same after Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee tried to salvage the situation.
You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through. -Rosalynn Carter.
The Congress chairperson talked tough and its curtains for the DMK drama. If only some toughness would come on the reform front, the market would be much more happy. For now, the two coalition partners have amicably settled the sticky issue of seat-sharing for the TN assembly polls. All eyes are now on Congress’ negotiations with the Trinamool Congress. We can only hope that the so-called political compulsions in the run up to the state polls won’t hamper policy-making any further.
