Lok Sabha Election Results 2024: Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is poised to secure a third straight term in power at the centre, albeit with the help of allies as the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) couldn't achieve the landslide victory that most exit polls had predicted. The results and trends of the Lok Sabha Elections 2024 announced on June 4 indicated that the NDA has won 293 seats, while the opposition INDIA bloc has bagged 232 seats.

The BJP alone could win 240 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha. This is 63 seats short of the 303 seats that the saffron party could win in 2019. The Congress has won 99 seats, almost double the number it secured in 2019 general elections, the Election Commission of India (ECI) said..

Modi's margin narrows

As for individual performances, Prime Minister Modi retained the Varanasi seat in Uttar Pradesh for the third time, albeit with a reduced margin.
