After nearly a decade in power, the ruling Indian National Congress and its allies are expected to battle with a growing opposition in the upcoming national elections. An economic downturn, corruption scandals, and a growing youth bloc are few among many factors sparking calls for change. The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party and Aam Aadmi parties are gaining momentum, and promising an interesting election in the midst of an already transformative year for the South Asia region. Sadanand Dhume and Milan Vaishnav will discuss trends, actors, and various factors influencing this critical election in India.
