Framing Foreign Policy

The handling of the Sri Lanka issue in the recent past by the Government of India raises the following questions:

Should the central Government of India not take the inputs of the State Governments in framing and conducting its Foreign Policy on the ground that foreign policy is the responsibility to the central government according to the Constitution of India?

Is India a democracy where the wishes and aspirations of the people are to guide the policies of the government or a meritocracy in which merits of an issue as viewed by those considered to be meritorious alone should guide the government?
