Lok Sabha Elections 2024: The 18th Lok Sabha will witness parliamentary elections for all 543 constituencies in seven phases from April 19 to June 1 and the result will be declared on June 4.

Nehru won three Lok Sabha elections in a row in 1951-52, 1957 and 1962. Earlier, PM Modi expressed confidence that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will get more than 400 seats and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will win at least 370 seats in the Lok Sabha Elections 2024.
