India vote seen as referendum on economy - China draws Europe closer into its orbit - Growth rates slow across most of Asia
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his BJP party have won India's general election. On the way to victory, Modi has completely changed the country and ushered in a new era for Indian politics, DW's Mahesh Jha writes.
India's ruling BJP party has mostly succeeded in turning the ongoing parliamentary election into what seems like a presidential one — with PM Modi as the most prominent candidate, backed by a devoted following.
Given PM Narendra Modi's mixed track record on economy, it's unclear whether his party will be able to replicate in 2019 the landmark electoral success it achieved in 2014. A setback at the polls remains a possibility.
The Indian economy has grown under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who came into office on a wave of economic populism. But anyone who thought India's growth would explode like its Asian neighbor China will have to wait.
