Muscat: According to initial election results, the BJP-led NDA gains a sizeable lead over its opponents in the Indian Lok Sabha 2019 election.

The BJP is currently leading in 200 seats while the Indian National Congress is leading in 58 seats.

The NDA (BJP and its allies) is leading in 280 seats whereas the UPA (Congress and its allies) is leading in 100 seats.

Over 27 major national and regional political parties are contesting for 545 Lok Sabha (lower house) seats in India.

The single largest party to get to 272 seats will form the government. However, if one party is unable to do so, a coalition with a majority in the house will be invited to form the new government.
