India's Congress suffers devastating defeat

After running the government for a decade, the Congress party is leaving office, raising questions about its future.

    The Indian National Congress party has suffered its worst national election defeat in its history.

    After nearly 10 years in government, the party and its United Progressive Alliance allies are leaving office.

    The Congress party may still play a role as part of India's political opposition, but its massive election loss has raised serious questions about its future.
