New Delhi: Even as the world`s largest democracy braced for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls` verdict on Friday, May 16, Google in its usual way has paid tribute to the country with an inked finger mark doodle on its India homepage.
With almost all exit polls predicting a clear win for the BJP-led NDA, celebrations in BJP have started early.
On the other hand, the polls have predicted 103 seats for the UPA, with Congress projected to secure only 79 seats.
As the counting of votes begins at 8 am for the nine-phase Lok Sabha polls, the first trends will emerge by 8:15 am, and a definitive indication will start coming by 9:30 am.
Narendra Modi, the BJP`s prime ministerial candidate will not be in Delhi on the day of counting and will watch the results from his home state of Gujarat.
