“India wins yet again”, tweets Modi after BJP’s big victory
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP is headed for a victory bigger than in 2014 - being set to cross the 300 mark on its own - as leads showed a NDA sweep in the national elections.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said "India's wins yet again" after the BJP's massive victory in the national election, reports NDTV. 

Leads show that PM Modi's BJP will get a clear majority on its own by winning 294 seats, which is better than the 282 seats it had won in the 2014 general elections.

"Together we grow. Together we prosper. Together we will build a strong and inclusive India. India wins yet again! #VijayiBharat," PM Modi tweeted this evening.

The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance or NDA is ahead in 345 seats, leads show, while the Congress-led UPA is leading in 91 seats. In 2014, the NDA had won 336. It was the first time in more than three decades that a single party won majority on its own.

BJP chief Amit Shah today said the massive win is the victory of PM Modi's development and the people's trust in him.

"This victory is India's victory. This is the victory of the hopes of youths, the poor, and farmers. This massive win is the victory of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's development and the people's trust in him. On the behalf of crores of BJP workers, I congratulate Narendra Modi," Mr Shah tweeted.
