Voters in New Delhi and other parts of northern India lined up early Sunday to cast their votes in the penultimate phase of the seven-stage general election as the opposition sought a united position to prevent Prime Minister Narendra Modi from winning a second term.

More than 100 million people in seven states are eligible to vote in the sixth phase of the 39-day election process,  Modi has begun war raged tools for the elections which risen the tensions with Pakistan.

However, opposition parties have recently been encouraged by what they see as signs of the loss of popular Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led by Modi and began negotiations on an alliance after the election even before the election ends on May 19.

Time magazine calls Modi ‘India’s divider-in-chief’ in its international edition 

The votes will be counted on May 23.

Some voters in Delhi said they dislike Modi’s strategy against the neighbouring countries on the cost of country’s security.

Political analysts say regional parties could play a crucial role in determining the shape of the next government after the BJP was hit by a lack of new jobs and poor agricultural prices.

Modi described the late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, Rahul’s father, as “the rotten number one.”

The past few weeks have also seen personal clashes among leaders, including comments from Modi on the family of Rahul Gandhi, head of the Congress Party and descendant of the Nehru-Gandhi political family.

During a recent election rally, Modi described the late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, Rahul’s father, as “the rotten number one.”

BJP says Modi was responding to Rahul’s description of the thief.
