India election results: Big wins, losses and surprises​

A tight Varanasi race and BJP’s Maharashtra downfall – here’s how India’s 2024 Lok Sabha polls defied expectations.

With most of India’s 640 million votes counted following the country’s six-week long election, the world’s – and history’s – largest democratic exercise appears to have thrown up some big surprises.
The governing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of Prime Minister Narendra Modi fell short of the 272-seat mark that signifies a majority in the Lok Sabha, the lower house of India’s Parliament, which has 543 seats in all. With its allies, the BJP has still secured a majority. The opposition INDIA alliance, led by the Indian National Congress party, has won 222 seats.
These numbers contrast sharply with 2019 results when the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) won 353 seats, 303 of which were bagged by the BJP alone.

For the first time since his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party swept to power in 2014, it did not secure a majority on its own, winning 240 seats —- far fewer than the record 303 it won in the 2019 election.
