A 'Modi' touch

, March 26, 2014

A supporter of Hindu nationalist Narendra Modi, prime ministerial candidate for India's main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Gujarat's chief minister, wears a mask depicting Modi before the start of a rally in Hiranagar on March 26. India's main opposition party would welcome more foreign direct investment in defence, if elected, but would delay opening up big-box retail to global players now barred from the country's market of more than 1.2 billion people. The nationalist BJP, which opinion polls show is on course to win the most seats in an election starting April 7, would also introduce a general sales tax and overhaul the financial sector, its manifesto is likely to say.
