"Everyday problems important when 900 million are voting"

"Unemployment, poverty, and growing divisions based on class."

"election issues has been overshadowed by security concerns and religious tensions as India conducts the world's largest democratic elections. Now it has soon come halfway."

"Jättenationen India is struggling with high unemployment. How high it is, there are divided opinions about, because the way of measuring has changed over the years. But some figures suggesting that it may be higher than in the last several decades."

"This has become one of the most important election issues for many indians, especially young people, when the nation is now carrying out its parliamentary elections. It says the journalist Ananya Bhardwaj, on the phone to the TT."

"– In the lower social classes, it is really a jobbkris, " she says."

"In the 20-miljonerstaden Delhi, where she lives, many lost their jobs or small businesses during the chaotic currency reform, which was implemented in 2016. It has hampered people's livelihood, in a city that is already growing at a rapid rate and where the cost of living skyrockets. Inequality is increasing and becoming a breeding ground for discontent."

"Nationalistic focus"

"The current government, with prime minister Narendra Modi and his party BJP in the lead, has not managed to do the India to the flourishing exportekonomi that neighbor China managed to become. Instead, it has focused on the hindu, nationalist aspirations, that of the outside world have been met with criticism and concern."

"– the Voters see that the promises of more jobs which Modi gave before the 2014 elections have not been honoured, " says Ananya Bhardwaj."

"The political opposition have faced problems by promising a kind of guaranteed income for families. But Ananya Bhardwaj'm not sure that those promises can tip the väljarskaran over from the american the BJP."

However, it is not the issues as the election campaign acted very much about, despite voters 'dissatisfaction," says Ananya Bhardwaj."

"– If prices for e.g. food goes up or down, it can put speed on the sympatiförändringarna in India much more than talk about religion, " says Sten Widmalm, Sydasienforskare at Uppsala university."

"another issue that affects both urban and rural areas is the rampant lack of clean water."

"India is soon halfway through the election that takes place in seven phases over the country, but it is too early to know anything about the end. The votes will be counted first in may. Much, however, indicate that the Modis party will once again lead the country."

"It is India, then, we will get to see is one where democracy is challenged all the more," says Sten Widmalm. According to his research, the trend is clear: Within a decade, the risk of India – in the day called world's largest democracy – to be in par with Pakistan in terms of democracy."

"Something Delhi journalist Ananya Bhardwaj do not think is going to happen."

"the Election to the indian lower house, lok sabha, starting on 11 april and takes place at different times in the country's 29 states and seven territories until 19 may. The result will be announced on may 23."
