India is increasingly unwilling to tolerate the old boys club with its closed membership
In 1996, India contested for a seat on the UN Security Council and lost to Japan by a big margin. The solidarity among developing countries came up short against what Indian officials called Japan’s “dollar diplomacy", as Poorvi Chitalkar and David M. Malone note in The Oxford Handbook Of Indian Foreign Policy.

India’s appeal among developing and underdeveloped countries did indeed help. But so did India’s increased economic heft.
