Exit Polls Show Modi’s Alliance Wins Majority, Indian National Elections

Local Indian media is reporting that exit polls are currently indicating that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance will win a majority of seats in the Lok Sabha with 365/543 seats, meaning a historic third term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. However, the BJP was looking to expand its previous 293 seats to 400. These exit polls are not authoritative.

General elections are being held in India from April 19th to June 1st 2024 in seven phases, to elect all 543 members of the Lok Sabha. The votes will be counted and the results will be declared on June 4th 2024. About 900M people are eligible to vote, making this the largest democratic election in world history.

According to these exit polls, the INC-led INDIA alliance is lagging severely. The BJP has defined its campaign issues as direct-cash welfare programs and the denunciation of “Muslim Appeasement” by INDIA. While INDIA seeks to combat rampant unemployment by filling the 3M vacant government posts to spur the economy.

This will be updated as more election results come in.
