- - The general elections in April and May 2009 saw the unexpected victory of the INC party. Dr. Singh, an Oxford-educated economist, is the only individual to have been re-elected following a full term since the time of the first prime minister. The Singh government was expected to accelerate the pace of reforms after its reelection. However, in 2010, India's corruption issues came to the fore with high-level investigations and arrests due to irregularities concerning the Commonwealth Games and the 2G spectrum awards. The Commonwealth Games scandal involved gross negligence of officials overseeing the organization of games and alleged misappropriation of funds, while the 2G scandal related to the sale of broadband licenses for far below market prices, estimated by the CAG to have cost the government INR1.76 trillion ($28.7 billion). These allegations and scams have tarnished the image of the government, and have led to nationwide protests. In the mid 2014 general elections, under Mr. Narendra Modi's leadership, the BJP witnessed a massive electoral victory and formed government.
