Lok Sabha Election Results 2019: In a speech after his party's emphatic victory, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that "the 2019 poll verdict is for new India". He said the huge number of seats that the BJP won was itself a "unique phenomenon" in the history of democracy."Since the country got Independence, so many elections took place, but the maximum voting took place in this election, and that too in 40-42 degree temperature," he added. He said the people of the country had answered (by casting votes for the BJP) like Lord Krishna, who during the Mahabhartha, had said that he was on no one's side. The people of India have given a strong mandate to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lead the country for the next five years. As the counting of votes comes to an end, the BJP seems set to form the government at the Centre once again.
As the mammoth saga comes to an end, here are the latest updates on the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 Results:
