Expectations enormous for India’s prime minister


Voters in India gave new Prime Minister Narendra Modi a strong mandate when he won elections in May.

And now the expectations are enormous.

The business world wants the government to initiate reforms to boost the economy. Ordinary Indians, meanwhile, have their own wish lists.

Ranvi Madan, a fellow in the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution, said that India’s leadership was pleased with the outcome of this week’s sixth annual BRICS summit.
