It is clear BJP govt is going: Priyanka Gandhi after casting vote

By 2100 IST (1530 GMT), the estimated average voter turnout in the six states and New Delhi, where elections were underway, had crossed 63%.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after casting his vote on Sunday, saying the latter "used hatred" during the elections but that the grand old party "used love".

In the cover story titled Can the World's Largest Democracy Endure Another Five Years of a Modi Government? the writer Aatish Taseer talks about rising populism in democracies as far apart as Turkey, Brazil, Britain and the U.S. the case in point being India. Moreover, he has played on the people's sentiments by projecting himself as a tea wala and now a chowkidaar.

On Thursday, BJP, citing the Nanavati Commission report, had said that "instructions to kill" came directly from then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's office.

He said people from Kanyakumari to Kashmir have chose to re-elect his government.

The news of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi sending a private jet to transport a child from Uttar Pradesh to Delhi AIIMS hospital has turned viral, and netizens are showering praises on the politician.

"More schools need to be built", said Delhi voter Purvek Shah.

In a neighbourhood in the city of Gurgaon, on the outskirts of Delhi, the economy is a concern, but so is corruption.

Hackers steal almost £31 million in Bitcoin from online exchange
Even cryptocurrency investors unscathed by hacks and scammers are still feeling the pain of a market that has dwindled in value. Binance , one of the world's biggest cryptocurrency exchanges, announced it has been a victim of a massive security breach.

The riots, which had left thousands of Sikhs dead, remain an emotive issue, especially in Delhi, which was the worst affected city, and Punjab, where the community live in very large numbers.

Kejriwal, a tax commissioner turned campaigner, has suffered more than most in India's notoriously rough-and-tumble political bullring.

In November a man smeared chili powder on his face inside the Delhi government building.

As the campaign period wound down last week, Atishi Marlena, a candidate for the Aam Aadmi party, spent hours riding on top of an auto rickshaw for a roving rally in the poorer alleys of East Delhi.

Both Atishi and Kejriwal accused Gautam Gambhir, a former worldwide cricketer and candidate for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), of being behind the pamphlet. The people who were responsible for the 1984 tragedy have to be punished.

Meanwhile, speaking at a rally in Haryana, Priyanka accused PM Modi of being "arrogant like Duryodhana" and added that this will bring about his "downfall" in Lok Sabha election 2019. Minutes before the electoral battle for sixth phase went underway, the two leaders underlined that "every vote counts". Rahul said his words, in Hindi, were used in a "free flow of a political speech" and there was no intention of "misleading, misrepresenting or stating false and non-existent facts".

At least one of the state's constituencies is in an area prone to attacks by Maoist rebels. The Congress chief said that so far it has been a "good fight" in the elections.
