Summary: Starting April 7, India’s general election — the world’s largest democratic exercise — is set to be the most momentous in decades. After 10 years of rule by the Indian National Congress, polls indicate that the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is likely to win a plurality of seats in parliament and lead the next government in New Delhi. The BJP’s controversial but business-friendly candidate Narendra Modi is likely to be prime minister. What would Modi’s election mean for India, and the world?
