The Congress party declared Saturday that the results of the Lok Sabha elections signify a ‘moral, political, and personal’ defeat for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Despite the BJP securing 240 seats in the 543-member House, they fell short of the majority mark, while the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) collectively won 293 seats. The Congress managed to win 99 seats.

Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh criticized the attempts to find positivity in what he called Modi’s ‘pathetic’ electoral showing. He compared Modi’s performance unfavorably with that of Jawaharlal Nehru, who led his party to over 360 seats in multiple elections.

Ramesh also highlighted that Modi is not the only leader to win three terms, pointing out that Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Indira Gandhi were also sworn in multiple times. He termed the 2024 elections a ‘moral defeat’ for Modi and a ‘morale booster’ for the Congress.
