(Reuters) - Indian shares fell on Monday tracking weak Asian markets after U.S. President Donald Trump’s failure to pass a healthcare reform raised doubts about his ability to push his agenda, while shares of information technology companies and drugmakers were hit by a stronger rupee.

The broader NSE Nifty ended 0.69 percent lower at 9,045.20 while the benchmark BSE Sensex closed 0.63 percent lower at 29,237.15.
