Modi magic: India's PM turns cash crunch into selling point (part 1)

It's not just his supporters who are calling it Modi Magic. India's prime minister has put himself front and centre and carried Uttar Pradesh for his Hindu nationalist BJP, a stunning win in the country's most populous state. It's a victory that hardly seemed possible when back in November, he surprised even his own cabinet when he suddenly scrapped 87 percent of the country's currency as part of a bid to crack down on tax cheats. Our panel discuss the reasons for Modi's win.

Produced by Alessandro Xenos, Charles Wente, Christopher Davis.
