Modi se prepara para una victoria histórica

May 23, 2019 - El primer ministro Narendra Modi va camino de una abrumadora victoria electoral que consolidará al líder nacionalista hindú como el político más formidable de India en décadas.

Election Commission data by midafternoon showed the Bharatiya Janata Party leading in contests for 299 out of 542 seats in the lower house of Parliament, with its main rival, the Indian National Congress, ahead in 50 contests.

The final tally was not expected until Thursday evening at the earliest.

The election has been seen as a referendum on India's 68-year-old prime minister, whose economic reforms have had mixed results but whose popularity as a social underdog in India's highly stratified society has endured.
