Indian states vote in assembly polls amid surge in COVID cases

Al Jazeera, 07 Apr 2021
State elections are under way in India in the midst of a worrying surge in coronavirus cases.
Polling is being held over 8 days in West Bengal, 3 days in Assam, but only on Tuesday in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and the federally administered territory of Puducherry.
The polls are seen as crucial for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party to gain a foothold in the east and south, where regional parties dominate.
