Indian Minister Resigns After Election Defeat
Indian Atal Behari Vajpayee resigns after his Hindu-nationalist party was dealt a shocking defeat in national elections. Italian-born Sonia Gandhi's Congress party now readies itself to take power in the world's largest democracy. Gandhi vowed to put together a secular government but would not say whether she would become the next prime minister. NPR's Philip Reeves reports.
