Lok Sabha election results 2024: People's mandate is OUT. BJP fell short of a majority while NDA comfortably crossed the 272 mark. However, Congress termed it a clear mandate against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, describing the results as his “moral and political defeat”.

Addressing a press conference, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, along with Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, stated that the BJP's failure to secure a majority is a "moral defeat" for Prime Minister Modi.


"This is 'janta ka result'...this mandate is against Modi ji. This is his moral and political defeat," said Mallikarjun Kharge.

The Congress leader also accused the BJP of capturing central agencies and using them against the opposition. 

"The opposition fought against the BJP, which had captured the country's institutions, including the judiciary. We fought this election not only against the BJP, but also against the country's institutions, governance structure, intelligence agencies (CBI and EDI), and judiciary, all of which were captured by Amit Shah and Narendra Modi ji," Rahul Gandhi stated.

"The fight was to uphold the Constitution. I'd like to thank the alliance partners. You have taken the first step towards saving the Constitution," he stated.
