Abstract

The United Progressive Alliance has completed one year. Although all the UPA’s constituents share political responsibility for its performance the Congress’ balance of power within the coalition justifies its greater burden. However, over the past one year, its attempts to turn the terms of power to its advantage have produced many damaging results. This article is an analytical review of the UPA’s electoral strategies and economic policies of the past 12 months which reveals the risks that lie ahead if the Congress and its allies do not change course.
