TAKE A LOOK-India's state elections: Modi's big mid-term test

3 Min Read

    March 8 (Reuters) - India is holding five state elections that mark the biggest mid-term

battleground state of Uttar Pradesh, is the biggest democratic election anywhere in the world
this year.
    Punjab, too, is a closely watched contest between the once-dominant Congress, struggling to
stem a slide in its fortunes, as it faces off against an anti-establishment party that is
seeking to establish itself as a national force.
