As the early trends show the NDA leading on 343 seats, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to reach the Bhartiya Janta Party headquarters in the evening at around 5 pm. The party has asked the state units to mobilize its cadre to the BJP office for PM Modi's welcome. Around 25,000 BJP workers are expected to reach the BJP headquarters.
The prime minister is leading in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency by 81,130 votes. In Uttar Pradesh, the saffron party is leading on a total of 54 seats. The SP-BSP-RLD mahagathbandhan, on the other hand, has taken a lead on just 24 Lok Sabha seats. Rahul Gandhi's Congress is leading on just two seats.
Meanwhile, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi is leading by over one lakh votes in Kerala's Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah is leading by nearly 1,25,000 votes in Gandhinagar in Gujarat.
Counting of votes begins at 8 am today and the Lok Sabha Election results will be declared by evening. However, the trends will be known by the afternoon. While in constituencies like Varanasi (Modi), Lucknow (home minister Rajnath Singh), Mainpuri (Mulayam), Rae Bareli (Sonia Gandhi) and Azamgarh (Akhilesh), curiosity will be more about margins, in other seats like Saharanpur and Kanpur, the BJP is locked in a tough contest with the SP-BSP alliance.
