India – the enigma.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brand of Hindu nationalism will likely be bolstered Monday when the country holds an election to decide its next president.

The position will be voted on by an electoral college comprising members of both Houses of Parliament and state legislators. Because of the domination of national and state lawmakers by Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the election of its chosen candidate is expected to be a mere formality.
