Elections in India: Hindu Nationalists on the Rise


India’s general elections are well under way, having begun on April 7th and continuing over 9 stages until May 12th. Results are set to be made public on May 16th.

Today’s (Thursday) leg of the electoral race will drive roughly 203 million voters to the polls in 120 constituencies across 12 states.

Recent polls have demonstrated a weakening of the ruling Congress party and a strengthening of the Hindu nationalist opposition.
