Election Result: PM Modi meets ministerial union advice at BJP headquarters in Delhi
Two days to count the votes for the national election, the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and the head of BJP Amit Shah met with the central ministers of the BJP headquarters in Delhi tonight. The meeting is followed by Mr Shah's exciting foundation with the leaders of the National Democratic Alliance, with a special dinner tonight. The dinner in Delhi's The Ashok Hotel is also expected to be a strategy session – although Sunday exit surveys predict a comfortable victory for the BJP. During the day, Amit Shah is also expected to meet with the Union Council of Ministers today to thank them.
Twelve 14 exit votes predicted that the NDA will have a full majority with seats ranging from 282 to 365. A total of exit polls predicted that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will win 302 seat and the Congress and its allies 122.
A party or league needs 271 seats to form the government, as the elections have been held on 542 543 seats Lok Sabha.
After the sixth stage of the election, the head of the BJP claimed the party had crossed the 300-seat mark.
But on Friday, before even the seventh stage of votes, as the Prime Minister Narendra Modi conducted what was sent as his conference to the first press, he considered it a sign of nervousness. PM Modi has not held a press conference during his five years in office and the judges have called the few interviews he gave.
In 2014, the BJP had crossed the majority mark on its own – first for a political party in three decades. But this time, many thought that the party might need the support of allies to cross the majority mark after Amit Shah made it a point to close ranks with even beloved allies like Shiv Sena and Nitish Kumar before the elections.
Two of the exit polls have also predicted that the NDA could fall a few seats short of the majority.
It is likely that all NDA leaders will attend the dinner, many of which have started to reach the national capital.
