in 1991 he became finance minister of India.
An interesting statistic about these 20 nations is
that only two of them are currently growing at
positive rates - China, growing at 6.5% per
annum and India, at 5%.
All the other 18 nations are shrinking. Japan's
annual growth rate in 2009 is expected to be
minus 6.4%, UK's minus 3.7%, Germany's minus
5.2%, and France's minus 2.9%.
Congress-led Alliance scores historic win in
Indian elections
the UPA was well on lead with 259 seats in the 543-
member parliament and nudged out its closest rival the
Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led
National Democratic Alliance (NDA). Final tallying is
still in progress.
Man Mohan Singh became prime minister for second
time
The Gandhi dynasty appears will continue to dominate
Indian politics -- with Congress chief Sonia and her son
Rahul, one of the general-secretaries of the grand old
party -- winning the Rae Bareli and Amethi seats
respectively.
