So the long-awaited results for the 17th General Election, 2019 are finally out. India has chosen Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister of India once again.
Out of 542 Lok Sabha seats, BJP has won 352 seats, which means the claim “Abki baar 300 Paar, Phir Ek Baar Modi Sarkar” has been made real. This time, BJP has surpassed its previous record i.e. 282 seats in 2014.
This also proves exit polls numbers right. This is the first time that a non-Congress party has won the elections second time in the row.
After winning, Modi did his first tweet as:
सबका साथ + सबका विकास + सबका विश्वास = विजयी भारत
Together we grow.
Together we prosper.
Together we will build a strong and inclusive India.
India wins yet again! #VijayiBharat

In the dark of the night, when the others were in deep slumber, the Chowkidar kept awake. He went after corruption, gagged illegal money and gave a fitting response to terror attacks. The nation is upbeat, the economy will boom and investments will happen.#ElecctionResults2019
