but as you said 80 seats in the pradesh go to the locks about the power that is incredibly vital that you get people on board and make sure that they vote for you here in this state because whoever wins this state could go on to potentially. become or form the next government but there's very different voices here in florida and this is what i found out about what they want from the next government . they've been queuing up since daybreak it's the 7th and final phase of india's general election on sunday people from 59 constituencies across 7 states and one union territory head to the polls more than 900000000 people were eligible to cast their ballot in the world's largest democracy over the past 7 weeks voters waiting here are excited that their day has finally come should be given. more infrastructure his physical situation that is should be given to. this day i
6:53 pm
felt really nice voting for the 1st time i want prime minister modi to come back to power and move the country forward and develop it so that the unemployed can get employment. environ arcee is one of 13 seats in the state of. that's being fought over on sunday it's the parliamentary seat of the incumbent prime minister nuri and remote there are many issues the electorate has had to consider communal politics unemployment the economy education and national security. for some small scale manufacturers the issue is clear this factory produces fans and has been severely affected by the monetize ation and the introduction of the new goods and services tax g.s.t. which is added to the manufacturing cost and impacted of the workforce. the new government to revisit the amount of tax small cottage industries like kids have to pay. for about 50 to 60000 people depend on cottage industries like us here my
6:54 pm
sales are down and property margins by about 60 to 70 percent when it comes to workforce i used to have about 30 employees now i can only afford. analysts suggest there is a disconnect between what the public needs and what politicians say they can deliver i think one of the reasons is that. india has been quite an immigrant from the masses they don't have things to offer our. economy. going deep into a crisis and the promises that they are making the parties i mean it's very difficult to fulfill their promises so they don't want to talk about that. while these voters wait patiently in line for their turn to vote the country will have to wait until thursday before the national vote count begins. so how this is the american election involving millions of people how peaceful has it been.
6:55 pm
yes on the whole pretty peaceful even behind me you can see that people are still coming to vote there's been a steady stream of people at this particular vote balloting center here in c. 100000000 cross the 87 states in the one union territory of voting on sunday and of course what the b j p the ruling incumbent government and party want is to make sure that they can maintain the 71 out of the 80 seats they got it's very rare that an incumbent government actually manages to secure that number of seats when they are reelected so it's going to be interesting to see how many they hang onto but the b.g.p. thinking that they might not be able to hang on to so many have got there on a state not too far away in west bengal it's run mainly by the t.n.c. they call the trinamool congress their leaders mum the ballot she does not like narendra modi and she's made that very clear over many many years now in recent
6:56 pm
days and in the last few days you would have seen or heard as our viewers have here on al-jazeera that there have been sporadic clashes between b j p supporters and t.m.c. supporters as the b j p leaders went into that state to try and drum up support for their electoral bid there are over 40 seats available in west bengal they're voting today but only. 2 of them in the last election so they're still trying to make inroads there it's obviously an affront to the t.m.c. small sporadic clashes there the election commission stopped campaigning 24 hours before it was supposed to on thursday night that caused a huge for or amongst the opposition parties because the election commission allowed the prime minister to speak in the state before election campaigning was halted once and for all at the moment small little clashes around the country we're hearing about nothing major at the moment i think that's the way of your thorough tease would like to keep it certainly in the final few hours of polling. across the
6:57 pm
indian election for us thank you for that update. well regional rivals iran and saudi arabia say they don't want a war as a riyadh's ally the united states builds up its military presence in the gulf in the past few hours the need of iran's revolutionary guard has come out saying terror on is not pursuing a conflict the saudi foreign ministry said the kingdom doesn't want to escalate tensions either but stands ready to defend itself. saudi arabia does not want war in the region and is not seeking it and will do its best to evade it but at the same time if the other party chooses war then we will respond with all strength and determination and will defend itself and its interests the kingdom hopes others to be wise and the iranian regime and its agents to stay away from recklessness and stupid acts and spare the region instability in saudi arabia ask the international community to take responsibility to stop that
6:58 pm
regime from destabilizing the world. and saudi arabia's king feldman has called for an emergency summit involving gulf and arab leaders at the end of the month to discuss the regional tension the united states has hastened its shadow of the points of an aircraft carrier and bombers to the gulf over what they say off threats from iran. well mohammad marandi is a political analyst and professor at the university of tehran and he now joins us live from there mohamed what's your take on the saudi statements we're hearing today are they stoking tensions or are they trying to calm them. or the iranians believe that the saudis and their moralities as well as the israeli regime that they're trying to push the region towards war they're encouraging bolton and pompei are to push the the white house towards a more confrontational approach the feeling also is that the u.s.
6:59 pm
president does not want that neither does the intelligence nor the military in the united states because they know that this the consequences would be very bad for the global economy. actually the 1st victims of any military conflict would be so the arabian them or it's they probably from looking at it from tehran they probably wouldn't last very long because they are completely dependent on oil and there are 2 very weak regimes as we saw in the war against yemen where both countries have failed to. gain any victory there on the hand that as you say there appear to be tensions within the trump administration between the president and his security advisers when it comes to an appetite for armed conflict who is potentially pushing this on the white house. well the feeling again is that the the the push is coming from bolton and those who are in his team
7:00 pm
but they're also being supported by. the pro israeli lobby or the zionist lobby israeli regime the saudi and the m r r t regimes but it seems very unlikely that the belief here is that there probably that there will not be a war because if there is a war then all the oil and gas insulations and the persian gulf region would effectively be destroyed and that would create a global economic depression and so and so the arabia and the emirates they are not just dependent on on oil but they're also in the case of the united arab emirates the the overwhelming majority of the population is not indigenous so it would be impossible for them to control the situation so the iranians have said repeatedly that we are. against war that they're against escalation but the same
7:01 pm
time the iranians are going to increase pressure on the saudis and them rocky's because.
