    March 11 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party won a landslide
victory in India's most important battleground state on Saturday, in a personal
triumph that will strengthen his claim to a second term as national leader.
    The Election Commission of India said Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)
had won a clear majority, according to partial results. The BJP was on course to
win 312 of 403 seats in the state assembly, the biggest majority for any party
in the state since 1977.
