After Exit Poll Results, PM Modi, Amit Shah Prepare For NDA-2
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah today signed off on a resolution meant to serve as a blueprint for an NDA-2 government.
The resolution is built around the three themes that are expected to get it the overwhelming mandate predicted by the exit polls - national security, nationalism and development. All key NDA allies were present at the meeting -- held after a dinner at Delhi's Ashoka Hotel - two days before the counting of votes in the national election.
"Thirty-six NDA allies were present at the NDA leaders' dinner today. Three NDA allies who were not present, have given their support in writing," Union minister Rajnath Singh said after the meeting.
Exit polls have indicated that the BJP will get a comfortable majority in the just-concluded national elections. Already, ministers have resumed work at their respective departments.
