New Delhi:

Election Results 2024: The BJP-led NDA won 292 seats and prevailed over the Opposition alliance - INDIA, which bagged 232 seats. The BJP's Uttar Pradesh dominance, however, faced a tough challenge from the INDIA bloc. The contest between the BJP and INDIA bloc in the Lok Sabha polls is a reflection of a broader ideological battle.

Poll Pundits had predicted a third term for PM Narendra Modi. But the INDIA bloc has put up a strong fight, defying predictions.

The BJP's campaign was led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The party's biggest star campaigner, PM Modi, participated in over 200 public meetings, including rallies and roadshows. The INDIA bloc's campaign featured joint rallies by Opposition leaders.

The counting of votes started at 8 am amid tight security. The counting of EVM votes started 30 minutes after the postal ballot count. This year's Lok Sabha election was the second-longest since India's first election in 1951-52. Any party or coalition needs a majority of 272 seats to form the government.

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said the BJP's below-expectation performance in the Lok Sabha polls was the outcome of its hate politics in the last 10 years and its "false" promises to the people, reported news agency PTI.

Ms Owaisi, who won the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency for a fifth consecutive term, said he will extend support, if necessary, to stop PM Modi from becoming the Prime Minister for a third term.

"We have publicly taken a stand that we will stop BJP," he said and claimed that the people were fed up with the BJP's politics of hatred, the youth were disappointed with unemployment in the country, and that the farmers were also upset. 

"The verdict has come, and if Modi ji forms the government now, then he has to come to Parliament with the support of allies. It will be a good scene to watch," he said.
