Tomorrow, 11 April, starts a marathon election, the world's largest
election, , that will go on for nearly six weeks. Around 900 million Indians
are entitled to vote in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. It's going to be a
closely watched election and a hotly contested one.

community. What are their expectations from the next government. Presenting
a spectrum of views from across India. Read on to know
