What Now

What is expected, is for the Congress and other parties in the opposition to act aggressively and hinder the smooth working expected of a Government with absolute majority.
Without big-bang reforms to propel the economy back to a near double-digit growth, economists say, a broader and sustained economic revival will likely remain elusive.
This is in turn would make the key issues of reforms secondary. It can be avoided only if "the people" take part keenly in the proceedings and refrain from being bias
and blinded following the perceptions that may be sold through the less than perfect media.
With so much resources of telecommunications available the informed the civil society must do the constructive job of keeping their representatives in check, you know because people are dying of hunger and poverty and stuff!!
