Election Results 2024 highlights: INDIA shrinks BJP numbers but PM Modi set for 3rd term

Election Results 2024 highlights: PM Modi's grueling campaign strategy seems to have hit back as results poured in on Tuesday, wherein the PM's ‘400-paar’ ambition was overshadowed by the INDIA bloc, which restricted the BJP to far below the majority mark of 272

Election Results 2024 highlights: The BJP-led NDA was leading in about 300 seats while the INDIA bloc's lead crossed 227 seats defying all exit poll predictions as counting gets underway across 542 seats on June 4

The counting of votes for Lok Sabha Elections 2024 began at 8 am. All eyes are on whether the exit poll predictions will hold ground and Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) comes back to power with a historic third straight term. 

A party or a coalition needs to win at least 272 of the 543 Lok Sabha seats to be in power at the centre. With one seat, Surat already decided in NDA's kitty unopposed, votes for 542 seats will be counted today. 

Narendra Modi will be the first Prime Minister after Jawaharlal Nehru to win three straight terms, if the NDA emerges victorious under his leadership in the Lok Sabha Elections 2024.

What did the exit polls predict?

While most of the exit polls predicted a smooth victory with over 350 seats for PM Modi-led NDA, at least three major exit polls – India Today-My Axis India, India TV-CNX, and News24-Todays Chanakya – have predicted 400 plus seats for the ruling coalition in general elections.

While the BJP is confident of easily crossing the majority-mark and has even planned out celebrations, the Opposition’s INDIA bloc has rubbished the exit polls.

What was the result in 2014 & 2019?

In the Lok Sabha Elections 2019,  pollsters had predicted around 285 seats for the NDA. And in reality the NDA bagged 353 seats, of which the BJP got 303 alone. The Opposition’s UPA managed only 93 seats of which the Congress got 52. In the Lok Sabha Elections 2014, the NDA was estimated to win around 257-340 seats. However, the NDA won 336 seats and Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister for the first time.

Election Results 2024 Live:  PM Modi thanks Nitish Kumar, Naisu in speech

As India looks to the next government that will be formed, Prime Minister Narendra Modi kept Nitish Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu in his speeches, almost like a special mention. 

This assumes importance, because BJP has fallen short of majority, and for NDA to form government for the third term, JD(U) and TDp will have to retain their support. 

Chandrababu Naidu was arrested eight months back and spent two months in jail in a corruption case probed by his arch-rival's administration, Nitish Kumar was written off by many after the latest of his many flip-flops.

Election Results 2024 Live: 'Khata-khat, khata-khat, khata-khat'... Rahul Gandhi leads Cong's stunning fightback

Election Results 2024 Live: Lampooned as ‘Shehzada’ and dismissed as a serial ‘reinventor’ constantly looking for an identity, Rahul Gandhi may have just had the last laugh this Lok Sabha election.

He carried out a padyatra from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, a hybrid one from Manipur to Mumbai and pretty much set the narrative for the Congress, staying the course as the moral compass of the party - and the INDIA bloc - who refused to be deterred by setbacks.

As votes were counted for the Lok Sabha election on Tuesday, the former Congress president derided by so many through the campaign was one of the drivers of his party leading or winning close to 100 seats, almost double the 52 from 2019.
