Previous Prime Minister
The 2011 Indian general election produced a majority for the Progressive Party marking the first time in Indian history that one party lost its majority to another in an election.
Following the 2006 election the INC had governed with a parliamentary majority however had been gripped by a series of scandals over the course of the parliamentary term.
The Progressive won a Parliamentary majority whilst the INC suffered a landslide defeat losing more than half its seats, it marks the first time in the history of the Indian Federation that the INC isn't the largest party in the Assembly and the first time a party other than the INC has held a Parliamentary majority.
