As the counting of votes is underway for the Lok Sabha elections for the 542 seats that went to polls, BJP is leading in more than 300 of them. Many political leaders took to Twitter to congratulate the winning team.
One of the first leaders to congratulate Modi was National Conference leader Omar Abdullah.
“Credit where credit is due PM Modi Sahib and Mr Amit Shah put together a winning alliance and a very professional campaign,” he tweeted.
So the exit polls were correct. All that’s left is to congratulate the BJP & NDA for a stellar performance. Credit where credit is due PM Modi Sahib & Mr Amit Shah put together a winning alliance & a very professional campaign. Bring on the next five years.— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) May 23, 2019
This was accompanied by a tweet by PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti who said, “Time for Congress to get an Amit Shah.”
Congratulations to Narendra Modi ji for a historic mandate. Today surely belongs to BJP and it’s allies. Time for Congress to get an Amit Shah.— Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) May 23, 2019
Former Chief Minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje also took to the social media platform to extend congratulations.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted congratulations with a twist. She was of the view that nothing can be said until the entire process is completed.
“We have to do a complete review and then we will share our views with you all. Let the counting process be completed fully and the VVPATs matched,” she tweeted.
Congratulations to the winners. But all losers are not losers. We have to do a complete review and then we will share our views with you all. Let the counting process be completed fully and the VVPATs matched— Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) May 23, 2019
Former Union minister MJ Akbar said “dynasty has destroyed Congress”.
Congress has less than 10 seats between Gangotri and Sagar in Bay of Bengal, and less than 10 seats between Maharashtra and Odisha. Its few numbers come only because of allies in Kerala, TN and Captain Amrinder Singh in Punjab. Dynasty has destroyed Congress.— Chowkidar M.J. Akbar (@mjakbar) May 23, 2019
