Hinduja: Modi Majority is the Way Forward for India

May 14th, 2014
05:54 AM ET

We're just days away from learning the results of the world's biggest ever exercise in democracy. 815 million Indians were eligible to vote in an election process lasting five weeks. And for those who turned out, money clearly matters.

India was once mentioned in the same breath as China in terms of economic growth. But that growth has diminished in recent years and GDP per capita is now just a quarter that of its northern neighbor.

Many Indians feel that the leadership of BJP candidate Nardendra Modi will encourage new growth. His record in the state of Gujarat has far exceeded the national average. And support is now coming in the significant form of industrialist Gopichand Hinduja.

Just this weekend India-born Gopichand and his brother Srichand Hinduja were named Britain's leading billionaires by the Sunday Times. Speaking exclusively to CNN about the impending election result and its repercussions, Gopichand says that a Modi majority can help to bring stability and economic confidence to the world's most populous democracy.
