There are 815 million registered voters. And it's looking increasingly likely they're going to inflict a resounding defeat on the ruling Congress Party after the longest economic slowdown since the 1980s.

Even so, the Common Man Party led by anti-corruption crusader Arvind Kejriwal could introduce an element of surprise for both the main rivals.
