Congratulations poured in for PM Modi, who was re-elected

Congratulations poured in for PM Modi, who was re-elected by over 4.75 lakh votes from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. BJP President Amit Shah was on the road to victory with an equally thumping margin from Gandhinagar in Gujarat.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday led the BJP to a stunning victory in the Lok Sabha battle, with the ruling party itself set to win over 300 seats in a marked improvement over its 2014 showing that left the opposition dazed and demoralised.

And along with its allies, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) was poised to give another five years of governance, a development that sent the Sensex breaching the 40,000-mark as India Inc celebrated.

The NDA could end up with 343 of the 542 Lok Sabha seats where polling took place.

"India wins yet again!" tweeted Modi as it became clear that the Congress, India's oldest political party that had mounted a major challenge to Modi, was set to be routed, winning just marginally more seats than the 44 it got in 2014.

    Lok Sabha Election Results 2019: Mamata's residence, TMC headquarters wear deserted look

    As trends showed a saffron surge in Bengal, the residence of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in south Kolkata's Kalighat wore a deserted look on Thursday with just a handful of Trinamool Congress supporters gathered outside.

    The scene was no different at the party's state headquarters off EM Bypass in eastern part of the city.

    Even though police had cordoned off the entire area outside Banerjee's house apprehending turnout of supporters, only a few were seen silently standing with newsmen outnumbering them.

    The scene was grimmer at the EM Bypass office, as except guards and few policemen no TMC supporter or party leader could be seen.

    "We didn't expect such a result in Bengal. Our party supremo Mamata Banerjee had given a call for winning 42 seats, we had hoped that we would improve our tally. But the results are completely unexpected. It seems we failed to gauge the strong undercurrent in Bengal," said a TMC leader, who did not wish to be named.

    Lok Sabha Election Results 2019: Modi only PM to come back to power with full majority after Nehru and Indira

    After Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, Narendra Modi is the third prime minister of the country who has been able to retain power for a second term with full majority in Lok Sabha.

    As counting goes on across the country on Thursday, trends show the Modi-led BJP would be easily able to cross the halfway mark of 272 seats in the 17th Lok Sabha elections.

    In 2014, the BJP had won 282 seats out of total 543 in Lok Sabha.

    Jawaharlal Nehru won around three-fourth of the Lok Sabha seats in the first elections in the country during 1951-52. Subsequently, he was able to win 1957 elections as well as 1962 elections with full majority.

    Since the elections were happening for the first time in independent India in 1951, the polling had to be spread over a period of five months from October 1951 to February 1952.

    While the Congress hegemony was insurmountable in 1951, various other political strands such as Bhartiya Jana Sangh, Kisaan Mazdoor Praja Party, Scheduled Caste Federation and Socialist Party had started to take shape by then.

    The Shiv Sena Thursday lavished praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the BJP-led NDA appeared to be retaining power comfortably, saying nobody would be able to pose a challenge before him for the next 25 years.

    The Uddhav Thackeray-led party had often criticized the BJP in the last five years but eventually sealed a fresh alliance with it ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.

    Sena MP Sanjay Raut said that people had given a befitting reply to opposition parties who created "an atmosphere of illusion" against Modi over issues such as the Rafale fighter jet deal.

    Lok Sabha Election Results 2019: Accept people's mandate with humility, says Ashok Gehlot

    As the BJP heads for a clean sweep in the Lok Sabha elections in Rajasthan, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot Thursday said the people's mandate has to be accepted.

    "We accept the people's mandate with humility. Congress has always worked to build a strong democracy. I thank the people of the state and Congress workers for peaceful participation in polling," Gehlot said. 

    The chief minister said the party workers worked hard to take policies, principles and programs of the Congress under the leadership of party president Rahul Gandhi to people but they need not get disheartened. 

    Gehlot said the country was supreme for the Congress, whereas for the BJP coming into power was more important.

    The Congress president fought the elections on issues of public welfare and development but Narendra Modi flouted the Election Commission's model code of conduct and polarised the elections in the name of religion, caste and army's valour, Gehlot said. 

    He said Modi did not answer questions on the election promises made in 2014, whereas the Congress sought votes for development and public welfare.

    Rahul Gandhi is heading for a record-breaking margin against his nearest rival CPIs PP Suneer in the Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency on Thursday,
    as roads in front of counting centres in this hill town wore a deserted look.

    As counting progressed, Gandhi established a lead of over three lakh votes, probably the biggest margin in the Lok Sabha elections in the state.

    Local leaders assembled at the DCC office and burst crackers in anticipation of the big win and shouted slogans congratulating the Congress chief.

    Lok Sabha Election Results 2019: BJP set to sweep in Karnataka

    The BJP appeared headed for a spectacular win in Karnataka, as trends showed it led in 24 of the 28 total Lok Sabha seats, leaving the ruling Congress-JD(S) alliance in a tizzy with worries over its stability.

    Reflecting the coalition's woes, stalwarts Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge in Gulbarga and former Prime Minister and JDS supremo HD Deve Gowda in Tumkur were trailing their BJP rivals, Election Commission trends showed.

    Congress was ahead in two seats and JD(S) in one, with trends available so far indicating that neither arithmetic nor chemistry worked for the two parties which apparently failed to reconcile with each other at the ground level.

    An Independent candidate was leading in Mandya. Gowda was trailing by a margin of 28,499 votes in Tumkur, against BJP's GS Basavaraj.

    Lok Sabha Election Results 2019: BJP gains unassailable lead on 9 seats

    The BJP has gained unassailable lead in nine of the ten Lok Sabha seats in Haryana and the fight appears to be only for the Rohtak seat now where Congress' sitting MP Deepender Singh Hooda was putting up a challenge to the saffron party candidate.

    If the BJP wins nine or even the tenth seat, it will be the party's best-ever performance, surpassing the previous best in 2014 when it won seven of the eight it contested.

    In 1999, when it was in alliance with the Indian National Lok Dal, the BJP had won five seats while the remaining five were won by its ally.

    Rohtak was witnessing a see-saw contest between sitting MP Deepender Singh Hooda, who after leading with a margin of more than 13,000 votes at one stage over BJP's Arvind Sharma, was now trailing by over 4500 votes, as per trends available with the Election Commission.

    In the remaining nine seats, BJP candidates including five of its sitting MPs—two of them union ministers—were leading by margins ranging between 1 and 4 lakh.

    Lok Sabha Election Results 2019: DMK alleges interruptions in Tamil Nadu vote count

    Alleging interruptions in the counting of votes for bypolls to Tamil Nadu's 22 seats, the DMK on Thursday wrote to the Election Commission of India (ECI) threatening to approach the High Court if the poll body failed to intervene and ensure transparency in the process.

    According to the DMK, in many of the counting centres for the bypolls, the authorities have abruptly stopped counting of votes as the ruling AIADMK candidates are trailing behind the DMK candidates.

    In a letter written to the Chief Election Commissioner and the Chief Electoral Officer of Tamil Nadu, the DMK said: "We have strong reasons to believe that the Returning Officers have been instructed to bring results in favour of the ruling AIADMK party and therefore they are in the process of manipulating the counting procedure. If you fail to intervene forthwith, we would be constrained to move the Hon'ble High Court."

    According to the DMK, it had information that reporters authorised by the ECI to be present inside counting centres for the Assembly bypolls, were being forcibly evicted in collusion with AIADMK members.
