People started wondering if they were also looking for people named Asha and Akansha, just because PM Modi used those words during the speech! After the landslide victory PM Modi has become the first non-Congress leader to become Prime Minister for two successive tenures and will lead the 17th Lok Sabha.
The 17th Lok Sabha has to be constituted before June 3 and the process to form a new House will be initiated when the three Election Commissioners meet the President in the next few days to hand over the list of newly-elected members.
