Narendra Modi trying to get AAP de-registered, alleges Arvind Kejriwal
Harnessing distress over rural debt and a deepening drug epidemic, a rookie regional party is threatening to wrest power from Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the northwestern state of Punjab.
The building anger may cost the regional Shiromani Akali Dal and Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, which have been ruling the state in coalition for a decade, in tomorrow’s vote.
In a rolling series of five state polls, Modi is facing his biggest electoral test of the year, starting with Punjab and the tiny southern state of Goa, followed by Uttar Pradesh, which sends one-seventh of the lawmakers to the lower house of the national parliament. He’s invested heavily in the campaign, holding a series of rallies in both Punjab and Uttar Pradesh in an attempt to ease concerns about his sudden cash clampdown that has hit rural voters the hardest.
