Associated Press

SINGH ALONG: A key political party says it will still support Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's shaky government despite disagreement over recent economic reforms.

OFF-KEY: Singh's coalition was plunged into turmoil this week after one of its allies withdrew its support. The government now only controls a minority of seats in Parliament.

REFORM NOTE: Mulayam Singh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party told reporters Friday that he would continue to support the government from outside the coalition even though he disagreed with its decision to open the country's retail market to foreign giants.
