A state election that was supposed to be about India's booming economy has turned into a war of words over Hindu-Muslim divisions, riots and extra-judicial killings.Polls say he might win, but not by a landslide. I hope he loses. Badly.
Gujarat, one of India's most developed and also one of its most communally divided states, votes on Tuesday and Sunday in a two-stage poll that is being closely watched for clues about the fortunes of the country's two main parties.
Say a prayer for a peaceful poll, y'all.
