The victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP ), the Hindu nationalist party led by Narendra Modi which is symbolized by a lotus flower, has been more overwhelming than any better poll, winning 283 seats out of 543 available.
The majority of which will have Modi is even more overwhelming if you think that the coalition that supports him, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA ) won 337 seats, while the Congress-led coalition scored just 58 seats .
The opposite side of the coin is given by the collapse of the Congress Party led by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul (both re-elected), which goes beyond the worst defeat of the polls, so that the historic party of Nehru and Gandhi has gone under the two-digit winning 43 seats compared to the previous 206 seats. In practice, the party which led India to more than fifty years after independence, has been swept away. Consider that only in the state of Uttar Pradesh, BJP took more seats than the Congress has taken all over the country .
The only country left in the hands of Congress is Kerala, where, however, the BJP won for the first time in history a seat. In the rest of India the BJP victory was unique.
The victory of the BJP, characterized by a liberal economic policy and a strong religious and nationalist connotation, was greeted by a sharp rise in the Bombay Stock Exchange and many spontaneous demonstrations.
Poor also the result of the party Aam Aadmi Party, the party of corruption that took only 4 seats.
The turnout was high, with 66.38 % of the voters it is the highest of all time in India.
Narendra Modi sworn in as Prime Minister on 21 May.
