New delhi sources stated that Prime Minister Narendra modi won an emphatic mandate on Thursday for a second consecutive term in general elections. modi called it a "victory of honest people’s hope,” while Congress President rahul Gandhi and AICC general secretary in-charge Uttar Pradesh (east) and his sister priyanka Gandhi Vadra congratulated the Prime Minister on his second term.
Reportedly pakistan daily 'Dawn' ran the story with the header 'modi wins second term by landslide, pledges inclusive govt'. The DAWN wrote "In projecting himself as the choreographer of air raids on Balakot across the border, Mr. modi severely bruised a fractious and unequal opposition. Congress president rahul Gandhi lost his traditional seat in Amethi but was expected to win in Muslim-dominated Wayanad in kerala while Mr. modi looked poised to sweep in varanasi”.
Moreover American daily Washington Post ran the story with the header calling the Prime Minister 'india's modi' who won with appeal to nationalism. British daily the Guardian along with the story also ran a profile on the prime minister that read, “from impoverished tea seller to master of political theatre.”
