It was india's 'greece moment'. it faced an unprecedented financial crisis against the backdrop of political uncertainty and crumbling investor confidence. on 21 june 1991, p.v. narasimha rao became prime minister and appointed dr manmohan singh as finance minister. in less than thirtyfive days, the raosingh duo ushered in momentous changes in economic policy those that transformed the country.
