b.Manmohan Singh's main achievement in UPA-I was to negotate a nuclear agreement withthe US. The tme was propitous because the US had begun to feel the need to insure againstthe growing power of a resurgent China. Even so, there was considerable domestcoppositon to the deal and Singh had to fght a hard campaign to overcome it. India has yetto see much beneft from the deal, however. 32.During UPA 1 regime, growth was very rapid (around 8.5% a year, 7% per head peryear) from 2003—04 to 2010—11. 33.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
