The trends show that Modi has delivered a stunner. With the NDA set to win over 327 out of the 543 Lok Sabha seats, the Gujarat strongman has got the mandate he asked the nation for. The BJP itself is expected to win over 272 seats, leaving no scope for any error in delivering the change the teeming millions of the country are looking for.
The Congress, India`s oldest political party which had ruled India for a decade since 2004 at the head of the UPA, appeared set for an unprecedented rout.
Information from the Election Commission indicated a BJP sweep in northern, western and central India, and the party was also making gains in states where it has been traditionally weak.
