(Worthy News) - Hundreds of millions of Indians are casting their votes in the world's biggest democratic elections, but the country's evangelicals fear that another term under Narendra Modi will not be good news for Christians.

Vijayesh Lal, General Secretary of the Evangelical Fellowship of India, told Spanish website Protestante Digital that the competing parties have carried out a "very vicious campaign".

Up to 900 million eligible voters have been selecting their representatives since the polls opened on April 11. Modi, a staunch Hindu nationalist, has led the country since 2014 but Indians will have to wait until May 23 to find out whether he has managed to secure his re-election.
