India's opposition demanded the resignation of Congress Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, raising the stakes after forcing the exit of two cabinet ministers over corruption scandals.

 

Pressure has been building for months on the premier, who is widely accused of ineffectiveness while overseeing a sharp economic slowdown and turning a blind eye to a slew of graft controversies that have alarmed foreign investors.

 

The resignations have heightened speculation about how long the minority left-leaning Congress government, clinging to power with the support of two regional parties, can stagger on. Its five-year mandate expires in early 2014.
