Leaders across the world are sending congratulatory wishes to PM Modi on his magnificent electoral performance in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. BJP has already crossed leads on its 2014’s tally of 282 and is currently hovering at 300 seat mark on its own. The NDA alliance on a whole is leading on 350+ seats out of 543 Lok Sabha seats.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu became the first world leader to congratulate PM Modi for scripting a spectacular victory in the recently concluded polls and promised to strengthen their ‘great friendship’ as well as bilateral ties between the two countries. Netanyahu asserted that the victory reaffirmed PM Modi’s leadership of the world’s largest democracy.
Congratulations, my friend @Narendramodi, on your impressive election victory! The election results further reaffirm your leadership of the world’s largest democracy. Together we will continue to strengthen the great friendship between India & Israel.
