India’s new prime minister Narendra Modi is expected to win in the April 22 elections.
While he is the nation’s first Hindu nationalist prime minister, it is unclear how he would respond to the country’s religious and caste tensions.
In the run-up to the elections, he has sought to dispel perceptions that he is a Hindu nationalist and has promised to make it easier for those who have left to rejoin the Indian community.
His party is led by his two oldest sons, Arun and Narendra.
While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has a strong presence in the Hindu nationalist movement, the BJP is also a strong force in the opposition, winning nearly three-quarters of the seats in the country.
The Bharatiyan Janata party (BJP) is led with Modi’s approval and has been a major player in the elections.
The party has made gains in several states, including Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Bihar and Haryana.
The party also holds a commanding lead in the polls in the state of West Bengal, which is home to the largest number of Muslims in the Indian state.
The BJP’s strength is in rural areas, particularly in the northeastern states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
BJP spokesmen have been quick to point out that they have been the main party in West Bengal for over a decade and they are a party that has been winning elections in these regions.
But it remains to be seen whether the BJP will be able to capitalize on its strong showing in these states.AAP
