Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday led his Bharatiya Janata Party to a super-sized victory for a second term in office, as his message of nationalism, security, Hindu pride and a New India was wholeheartedly embraced by voters across large swathes of the country.
In Punjab, Congress won eight parliamentary seats in Punjab, bucking the pro-Modi trend seen across northern, central and eastern India in this general election. Out of the total 13 seats in the state, Congress romped home to impressive victory, surprising both the SAD-BJP combine and the Aam Aadmi Party and improving its tally from three in 2014 polls. It had won Gurdaspur in a bypoll in 2017.
