Modi to become next PM of India

(New Delhi) – Narendra Modi closed in on a landslide victory in India´s election as results showed him riding a wave of support for promises of jobs and development. Counting at the climax of the marathon six-week election showed his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party on track for a crushing win, with the Congress party nearing humiliating defeat after 10 years in power.
“It seems very bleak at the moment,” Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi admitted early in the day, with preliminary figures showing the BJP leading in majority of 460 constituencies where counting had begun. “I will accept victory on behalf of the BJP,” party spokeswoman Meenakshi Lekhi said.
Tonnes of sweets and fireworks have been delivered to BJP headquarters in New Delhi in anticipation of a landslide, while party workers beat drums and waved flags in Gujarat on Friday.
