On May 16 Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party were declared the winners of the world’s largest exercise of democracy — India’s general election.

In an article published last week in Daily Bhaskar, a leading Indian newspaper, Gaurav Sharma looks at India’s current economic situation in detail and how it is affecting India’s IT industry (which Gartner recently forecast at hitting USD 200 Billion in the next five years).

Despite these challenges, however, Gaurav concludes that Modi’s successful record in Gujarat and his pro-technology platform make him the right candidate to “kick-start economic growth and development in India,” and lead to “accelerated IT development and M&A activity.”
