India begins voting in gigantic election as Modi seeks historic third term

19/4/2024 13:36
        India began voting on Friday in the world's largest election as Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeks a historic third term in office on the back of growth, welfare, his personal popularity and Hindu nationalism.
        
        The vote pits Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against an alliance of two dozen opposition parties which is challenging him with promises of increased affirmative action, more handouts and what they say is the need to save democratic institutions from Modi's dictatorial rule.
        
        The gigantic exercise involving almost one billion voters will be spread over seven phases across the world's most populous country at the peak of summer. It ends on June 1 and votes will be counted on June 4.
        
        Voters began lining up outside polling stations much before they opened at 7:00 a.m. amid tight security, including senior citizens who needed help to reach the booths.
