If I were prime minister: Gita Kundu

India will be holding elections over the course of one month from 16 April.

BBC News asked people from all corners of the world's largest democracy what they would do if they were prime minister.


Gita Kundu
First of all, I will get rid of all the politicians and ministers and then I will work to improve the situation in the country.

Our country is in a right solid mess at the moment. The biggest problem is corruption. Everywhere you go, officials ask you for bribes. I will work to weed out corruption.

Poverty is also a major problem here. There are so many poor people who can't even afford to eat! Some people have big families and they need support. School fees are so high, something needs to be done about that too.

And India has been hit by terrorist violence so often. If I were the prime minister of India, I would make sure that they are all caught and tried quickly. And I would hang them in three months.
