Political and economic changes now taking place in India will have a profound impact on its fortunes. On May 26, 2014, the center-right National Democratic Alliance, led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), formed a new government. The BJP gained a majority in the lower house of parliament, marking the first time since 1984 that a single party has won a majority of votes. The victory also signifies a resounding defeat for the scandal-plagued coalition led by the Indian National Congress and opens up the possibility of economic and political reforms that bureaucratic roadblocks and corruption previously stymied.
