Country to support province after reverse (5)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'country' is the definition.
(India is an example)
'support province after reverse' is the wordplay.
'support' becomes 'aid' ('aid' can be a synonym of 'support'**).
'province' becomes 'ni' (I've seen this in other clues).
'after' says to put letters next to each other.
'reverse' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'aidni' reversed gives 'INDIA'.
'to' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for india that I've seen before include "I identified on radio", "[TEST TEAM]", "The country", "land in the East", "Sub-continental country", "where to ring for help?", "Cricket team", "Big country", "Kiss; quarter of a bushel" and "Commonwealth state".)
