As the opposition parties claimed, there’s no Modi wave. That’s because the Modi Tsunami has taken over.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has created history by winning the 2019 Lok Sabha elections even bigger than the previous one. Like the exit polls predicted, BJP is all set to register around 300 seats under the leadership of PM Modi and Amit Shah while the 48 year-old-youth icon Rahul Gandhi’s party has failed to win even a single seat in nearly 15 states.
The states where the Congress party registered Zero wins are Andhra, Arunachal, Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal, Jammu and Kashmir, Manipur, Mizoram, Delhi, Odisha, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Tripura and Uttarakhand.
Earlier it was predicted that BJP would lose its seat share due to the grand alliance. But the BJP has retained its dominance, just like in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. In Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, the saffron party displayed a stellar performance.
The BJP swept PM Modi’s home state Gujarat and improved its performance in Karnataka, West Bengal and Odisha. Even in Uttar Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party has crossed the mark of 55 seats.
After the grand return, PM Modi tweeted “सबका साथ + सबका विकास + सबका विश्वास = विजयी भारत” and added “Together we grow. Together we prosper. Together we will build a strong and inclusive India. India wins yet again! #VijayiBharat”.
सबका साथ + सबका विकास + सबका विश्वास = विजयी भारत
Together we grow.
Together we prosper.
Together we will build a strong and inclusive India.
India wins yet again! #VijayiBharat

The Congress party improved its performance only in Kerala where its alliance is leading in nearly 18 seats. But the shocking thing for the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi is that he is trailing in Amethi against Smriti Irani with a huge margin.
Currently, the Bharatiya Janata Party is leading in nearly 300 seats whereas the NDA has crossed 340 seats. Shiv Sena is leading in 18 seats and the JD (U) is marching ahead in 20 seats.
While the Congress party is ahead in 53 seats, Mamata Banerjee’s TMC is leading in 23 seats.
