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.
