PM Modi: It seems Prime Minister Narendra Modi is poised for a third term with the NDA inching towards the 300 mark. However, the spotlight today falls on the revitalized Opposition, surpassing the modest expectations set by exit polls.

Here are the top ten points in this major story

  • Speaking from the BJP’s headquarters in Delhi, after it became evident that the party would lead the new government, albeit with crucial support from NDA allies, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed gratitude to voters, stating, “Today’s triumph marks a victory for the world’s largest democracy.”
  • With Uttar Pradesh sending a staggering 80 legislators to the Lok Sabha, the BJP, which had set the NDA a target of 400 seats or more, now looks to be falling well short of its original goal. 241 seats were held by the BJP and 294 by the NDA as of 11 p.m. The Congress has 100 MPs, whereas the INDIA bloc has 231 seats. -PM Modi
  • The midwestern state of Uttar Pradesh seems to have rocked the BJP applecart, as the Samajwadi Party and the Congress have moved ahead in 44 of the 80 seats at 7 p.m. 32 is the lead for the BJP. In both 2014 and 2019, the BJP maintained its dominance in Uttar Pradesh. This time, an edge for the party was expected by the majority of exit surveys.
  • Two other battleground states have also not favored the BJP. In Bengal, where the party had high hopes, its performance may even fall short of the 2019 outcome, leading in only 12 seats as of 11 pm. Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress seems to have regained much of its lost ground and is currently ahead in 29 seats.
  • Maharashtra seems to have expressed its discontent with the political dynamics within Shiv Sena and the Nationalist Congress Party. The faction led by Uddhav Thackeray is currently ahead on 9 seats compared to Shinde Sena’s 7. Meanwhile, the faction led by Ajit Pawar of the NCP is leading on just one seat, while his uncle Sharad Pawar’s faction is ahead on 7 seats. The BJP is leading on 10 seats, and the Congress on 13.
  • As anticipated, the BJP’s losses are being compensated for by gains in Odisha, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and to some extent, Telangana. In Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu seems poised for a landslide victory, leading convincingly in 158 out of 175 constituencies. Sources suggest that the oath-taking ceremony will take place on June 9. In Odisha, the BJP secured a remarkable triumph, putting an end to the 25-year reign of Naveen Patnaik’s Biju Janata Dal.
  • “People have once again shown their trust in the NDA, marking a significant milestone in India’s history with a third consecutive term! I express my deepest gratitude to the Janata Janardan for their affection and assure them that we will persist in the commendable work of the past decade, striving to continuously fulfill the aspirations of our people,” tweeted PM Modi.
  • The campaign has been intense and prolonged, making it challenging to gauge the mood of the voters in this election. Three exit polls have forecasted a 400-plus score for the BJP-led NDA, with the remaining differing only in the margin of the NDA victory — conclusions that the Opposition has dismissed. Exit polls in the country have historically had mixed success.
  • Just like in every election, the BJP deployed its formidable election machinery early on and initiated a star-studded campaign that centered around development, the economy, and a vision for the upcoming 100-year anniversary of Independence. Supporting this campaign were the promises fulfilled — the revocation of Article 370 and the construction of the Ayodhya Ram temple.
  • The significant contrast was the Opposition’s aggressive stance against the ruling coalition, a departure from the lack of cohesion seen in 2019. Although the start was somewhat shaky and fragmented in places — such as the Congress versus Trinamool contest in Bengal and Congress versus AAP in Punjab — the narrative concerning a change in the constitution and the revocation of reservation policies made an impact.
