Indian PM Modi votes in third phase of mammoth general election

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Voting began in the third and largest phase of India's staggered general election on Tuesday (April 23), including in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state of Gujarat and in opposition Congress party chief Rahul Gandhi's seat in southern Kerala.

In all, 188 million voters are eligible to cast ballots in 117 constituencies during the day across 15 states and federally controlled territories.

India's parliament has 545 members.

The general election, which has seven phases, began on April 11 and will end on May 19.

Votes will be counted on May 23.

So far, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has aggressively pushed Modi's national security record as it seeks to offset the opposition's charges of economic mishandling, inadequate jobs creation and widespread farm distress.

Modi addressed an election rally in western Maharashtra state on Monday and mentioned the attacks on Sri Lankan hotels and churches on Easter Sunday that killed 290 people.

He said India's security had been enhanced after his government came to power in 2014.
