Counting of votes in the Lok Sabha election 2019 is almost over and the results show a landslide win for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The BJP has, on its own, managed to cross the 300 mark. Its current tally stands at 303 -- 21 more than 2014’s 282.
The Congress, however, finds itself in double digits for the second consecutive time with most of their major leaders losing from their respective seats.
Here's a short list of five highest victory margins in the 2019 Lok Sabha election:
BJP leader CR Patil won from Navsari seat of Gujarat by 6.89 lakh votes. CR Patil was seeking a re-election from Navsari. Patil who secured 9,72,739 votes defeated Patel Dharmeshbhai Bhimbhai (2,83,071) by a huge margin of 6.89 lakh votes.
