Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday credited PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah with running a very ‘professional campaign’ soon after vote counting leads made it clear that the BJP was heading towards a convincing win in the Lok Sabha elections.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Omar wrote: “So the exit polls were correct. All that’s left is to congratulate the BJP & NDA for a stellar performance. Credit where credit is due PM Modi Sahib & Mr Amit Shah put together a winning alliance & a very professional campaign. Bring on the next five years.”
The counting leads projected that BJP was set to win 346 seats, UPA 91, BSP-SP 19 and Others 86 in the 543-member Lok Sabha.
