With all the other news from India these last few days, I almost missed the news that VP Singh died on Thursday.
Singh was India’s first Prime Minister not from the Congress Party, other than the period immediately following the broad front that defeated Congress during the emergency rule of 1977. His PM-ship was a short one, lasting less than a year in 1989-1990, as head of a so-called National Front. This was the beginning of a period of high government turnover, prior to the formation of the two broad alliances (National Democratic Alliance and United Progressive Alliance) that have taken turns governing since the late 1990s.
