Gujarat's Chief Minister Narendra Modi addresses his supporters during an election campaign rally ahead of the state assembly elections at Dokar village in the western Indian state of Gujarat in this October 11, 2012 file photo. India's Gujarat state will hold a potentially game-changing vote on Thursday that could help decide whether Modi or Rahul Gandhi, scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, becomes India's next prime minister. If, as many polls predict, Modi wins a fourth term as chief minister of the state, he is expected to project himself as the presumptive prime ministerial candidate for his right-wing Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in a general election due in 2014.
