A farmer walks through a field of a farm at a village in Haryana, India, on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. As India???s massive election enters its final stage, Prime Minister??Narendra Modi???s??bid for re-election will turn on the sentiment of the country???s 263 million farmers who support more than half the population. With crop prices depressed and farmers protesting and even committing suicide in their thousands, his ability to keep this vital section of the electorate on board could depend as much on his appeal to their nationalism as on cash handouts.
