    Modi declares victory in the world’s largest election

    India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared victory in the country’s general election, once again winning the world’s largest election.

    Nearly one billion people had registered to vote in this election, which was held in seven phases over six weeks.

    It is noteworthy that the alliance led by Modi’s party, the Bharatiya Janata Party, has won much less than the expected number of seats in this election.

    Modi’s alliance expected to win more than 400 seats.

    But his BJP-led alliance is ahead in the polls, winning less than 300 seats.

    According to the country’s reports, the opposition parties are getting about 230 seats.

    A party or coalition that wins more than 272 seats in the 543-member Indian Parliament can form the government.

    Speaking in Delhi, Modi thanked voters for his mandate and promised to bring about “green industrialisation”.

    Another key election promise of Modi, who declared that the country was entering a “green era”, is corruption.

    He admits that eradicating it will be difficult, but he has promised to “do everything possible” to eradicate it “by the roots” during his third term as prime minister.

    Vowing to end poverty, Modi further emphasized that “we cannot stop until poverty is eradicated from India”.

    President Ranil Wickremesinghe, Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena, Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa, and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa also congratulated Modi who won as the Prime Minister of the neighboring state for the third time.
