After five weeks, nine phases, and with more than 800 million voters casting ballots, India has closed the polls for a historic election to decide the fate of the country. With the Prime Minister seat up for grabs, a collective of photographers that calls themselves Scroll.in has been crowdsourcing all the twists and turns as Narendra Modi--a fiercely divisive leader and current chief minister of the Indian state of Gujarat--looks to become India's next leader. His platform? Modi has aggressively positioned himself as "India's CEO."
It has been a long, grueling, and at times violent clash of political ideologies. Nevertheless, Scroll.in's Instagram feed has been there to document history in the making--for better or worse. The official election results are due out Friday.
