The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was on Thursday set to retain power for another five years after making a sweep of the Lok Sabha battle and mauling the opposition.
So stunning was the BJP's showing that it bulldozed the opposition even where it had looked strong, virtually sweeping entire states in northern India and even beyond and making unprecedented inroads in Trinamool Congress-ruled West Bengal.
Punjab was one of the few states that resisted the 'TsuNaMo 2.0' with Congress winning 8 out of 13 seats. Jammu and Kashmir saw National Conference and BJP bag 3 seats each.
Haryana and Himachal Pradesh were clean sweeps for the BJP.
Here are the full lists of the winning candidates from the northernmost Indian states of J&k, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Haryana.
