India’s Modi set to return to power with a bigger majority, exit polls show

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to return to power with an even bigger majority in parliament after a mammoth general election that ended on Sunday (May 19), exit polls showed, a far better showing than expected in recent weeks.Modi’s National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is projected to win anything between 339-365 seats in the 545-member lower house of parliament with the Congress party-led opposition alliance at a distant 77 to 108, India Today Axis exit poll showed.To rule, a party needs to win 272 seats. Modi’s alliance won 336 seats in the 2014 election. The exit polls showed that he not only held to this base in the northern Hindi belt but also breached the east where regional groups traditionally held sway.Counting of votes recorded in hundreds of thousands of computerised machines will begin early on Thursday (May 23) and results are expected by noon.
