INDIA-POLITICS-ELECTION

Five Indian states representing more than 160 million voters will go to the polls, a key test for the prime minister after his shock currency move. The elections will begin on February 4, nearly three months after Modi announced he was scrapping nearly 86 percent of all Indian currency, a move aimed at curbing widespread tax evasion. / AFP PHOTO / INDRANIL MUKHERJEE
