No matter how one looks at the election results, they fail to support the hypothesis that the people of India have spoken against the reforms. The Congress agenda itself being pro-reform, a vote against reforms should have actually placed the third parties in a position to form the government. This has not been the case. The main constraint on the reforms process will be defined by the compulsions of coalition politics.
