The lead[edit]

The lead, per Wikipedia policy, is a summary of the body of the article, which gives equal weight to every section of the article and is in keeping with the weight given in the reliable sources to the topics treated.

How then did an article about a historic 131-year-old political party, that led India to independence, and has formed most federal governments in India during its first 70 years of independence, came to have a one-sentence lead paragraph:

"The Indian National Congress (INC, often called Congress) is one of two major political parties in India; the other being the Bharatiya Janata Party?"

And how did it come to be cited to a poorly written article, with no author or by-line, No by-line. "In Numbers: The Rise of BJP and decline of Congress". Times of India. ?

I will be reworking the lead in line with the guidelines of Wikipedia. I already have made a number of corrections. I trust that everyone agrees that in a political arena as contentious as India's, the description and history of a major political party needs to be undertaken with assiduity and care.

I have made my first set of edits. I will continue to improve the article in the coming days. I have left an "underconstruction" sign on the page. Please do not unilaterally make any signifiant changes in my edits, unless you have posted here first. Best regards, Fowler&fowler«Talk» 22:07, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
