Prime minister-elect Narendra Modi summoned senior figures from his Hindu nationalist party Sunday for talks on forming a new government that is set to steer India sharply to the right.Modi faces enormous expectations from tens of millions of voters after pledging to create jobs and increase development to revive the economy, which is growing at its lowest level in a decade.After his presidential-style campaign dominated the election, Modi reiterated Sunday his pledge to work with his BJP-led National Democratic Alliance coalition to make India a world leader "once again". Sushma Swaraj, who led the opposition in the lower house in recent years and is the BJP's most senior female leader, is also expected to receive a key cabinet position, although she is not close to Modi.
