PM Modi to face the test of fire at UP elections

Since coming to power three years ago, PM Modi and the BJP is set to face the Assembly elections in UP slated to be held in seven stages over a month. Following his signature of abolishing 86 percent of the cash in circulation, this will be the first time, Modi will be facing the people’s verdict. It remains to be seen whether his move to eradicate untaxed income and corruption has strengthened or decelerated his popularity among the common people.
