The verdict is out. BJP has created history and is set to form the government at the Centre for the next five years, replacing the UPA who was at the helm for last 10 years. Narendra Modi is set to become the first prime minister who was born in independent India. This is the third time that BJP will lead the country after Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s stint in 1996 and 1998-2004. The Indian economy is grappling with series of problems like poor infrastructure, stalled projects, high inflation and job creation. The GDP growth is now at decade low and the nation expects Narendra Modi to revive it in his term. Let us see how India grew under various Prime Minsters since 1951.
