India's response to Libya air strikes bipartisan

India' s response to the air strikes in Libya is not only clear as well as consistent but also very vocal and reportedly bipartisan. India did not call for setting of the no-fly zone and also did not vote for it at UNSC. Having achieved independence in 1947, India asked all foreign troops to leave Indian soil by 1950. In 1950, India was proclaimed a republic. Many policy-makers in democratic India are English -literate and they follow developments in world affairs in English-language mass media.
