Indian General Election 2019: Massive win for Saffron

Indian general election 2019 was held in seven phases from 11 April to 19 May 2019, and votes are counted on May 23. Around 90 crore people were eligible to vote in the general election this year, an increase of around 9 crore compared to the election in 2014. An estimated 13 crore of them were eligible to vote for the first time.

Riding on a massive saffron surge sweeping through most parts of India, the BJP-led NDA government became the only non-Congress government to return to power in the Indian political history. The Bharatiya Janata Party won 303 seats, further increasing its substantial majority and the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance won 353 seats. The Indian National Congress party won 52 seats, and the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance won 91. Other parties and their alliances won 98 seats. Indian National Congress again failed to secure the requisite 10% of the seats (55 seats) in the Lok Sabha and hence India remains without an official opposition party.

After Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, Narendra Modi also became the third prime minister of India who retained power for a second term with full majority in Lok Sabha.
