Trends in 2009 post this week noted the increasing innovative activity in India and China.  Further evidence of that trend comes from a ScienceInsider report today that support for science and technology has taken a prominent place in the ruling Congress Party’s election manifesto.  The party notes that in the last two years it has opened:

eight new Indian Institutes of Technology, seven new Indian Institutes of Management, five new Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research, 30 new Central Universities, 20 new Indian Institutes of Information Technology, and 374 new colleges in educationally deprived districts.
