Live: PM Modi claims victory in India's general elections
Issued on: Modified:
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed victory in general elections on Thursday, vowing to create a more "inclusive" country after his party staved off a challenge from a Gandhi dynasty scion hoping for a comeback.
Rahul Gandhi lost the traditional family seat in Uttar Pradesh and is likely to face a backlash from inside the main opposition Congress party after it lost a second consecutive general election to Modi’s Hindu nationalist party.
