Rahul dubs exit polls as false, asks partymen to remain vigil

She further added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah are expected to be present at the meet.

The dinner came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shah met all the central ministers, including those from NDA partners, at the BJP headquarters in Delhi to thank them for their work during the last five years. He said the election narrative was seeing a change and said "the poor were the biggest caste".

While the thanksgiving meeting for the Union cabinet for their "service to the nation" is an organisational exercise, the NDA meeting comes with a political message. "We are best suited to address regional aspirations and enhance national progress", PM Modi tweeted after the event.

Now, the exit poll predictions for the Lok Sabha 2019 election have shown a clear majority for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in the lower house of Parliament. Addressing them, Modi likened his poll campaign to a pilgrimage because, he said, it stood out from other polls since it was being fought by the people and not the party alone.

Shiv Sena commended Congress party chief Rahul Gandhi and East Uttar Pradesh general secretary Priyanka Vadra for working hard and emerging as a strong opposition this time.

The resolution was proposed by BJP ally and Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan. The meeting passed a resolution which hailed the development initiatives of the NDA government and noted that it had raised India's stature in the world. "NDA has become a principal pillar of Indian politics", he said.

According to the exit polls, Congress is likely to have a shot at power in only highly hypothetical scenarios. "NDA has been able to leave its impression of good governance".

The NDA has also committed to invest Rs. 25 lakh crore in the farm and rural sectors in the next five years.

India's marathon election wound up on Sunday after nearly six weeks of voting, with results expected on Thursday.

"We expressed concern over the opposition raising unnecessary doubts on the EVMs and the integrity of the Election Commission. The Supreme Court has already given its judgment on EVMs", he said.

Indian benchmark index Sensex looks set to test the psychologically important level of 40,000 points on the day of the election results on Thursday (May 23) and Nifty 12,000 points as the markets are continuing their upward momentum gained from the exit polls.
