Despite allegations of tampering EVMs and other controversies such as violations of Model Code of Conduct (MCC) from the Congress, the results are in favor of BJP -led NDA coalition. Also, the mandate has once again made it clear that the Congress-led UPA has not been the first choice for heading the parliament. For any party to form a government it should cross the majority mark of 272 seats out of the 542 Lok Sabha seats.
With a lead of more than 300 seats, the BJP and its allied parties are almost on the threshold of forming a government. Although the counting will continue and there can be some ups and downs the latest updates on counting indicate that the BJP alliance is all set to retain the power.
