18:00 IST, June 4, 2024: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is set to form its third consecutive government at the Centre, despite falling short of a simple majority in the Lok Sabha.

17:45 IST, June 4, 2024: The Congress party has made a significant comeback, nearly doubling its tally from the 2019 elections by winning 99 seats. This marks a resurgence for the Congress, which had been relegated to the sidelines following its lowest-ever tally in the 2014 elections. The Congress-led INDIA bloc, which includes several regional parties, secured over 231 seats, indicating a robust performance by the Opposition.
