Vladimir Putin congratulates Norendra Modi on his party's victory in the parliamentary elections in India
Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Narendra Modi, who is expected to become the next Prime Minister of India, on the victory of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party in the general parliamentary elections in that country, the Kremlin press service reported today.
Opposition party BDP will form the new government of India
Putin is confident that the countries together will be able to build on the achievements of the previous period. He highly appreciated the relations between Russia and India, noting that they are based on the declaration on strategic partnership signed during the Bharatiya Janata Party's stay in power and determining the development of bilateral cooperation for years to come.
"The impressive results of fruitful joint work over the past time have confirmed the historical significance of the declaration. Large-scale mutually beneficial projects have been implemented in the economic, military-technical, scientific, cultural and humanitarian spheres," Putin's press service quotes.
Elections to the 14th Lok Sabha were held from April 7 to May 12 in nine rounds. The counting of votes began on Friday. The victory of the opposition became evident within about an hour after the counting began. The results of the BJP and its allies were even better than those predicted by exit-polls held on Monday after polling stations closed.
The former ruling party of the Indian National Congress recognized its defeat even before the announcement of the official voting results, which took place in nine stages from April 7 to May 12 2014 of the year and lasted for 35 days. Then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh resigned, making room for Narendra Modi.
