In a battle where the NOTA (none of the above) option set a record, BJP's Shankar Lalwani won the Indore Lok Sabha seat on Tuesday by a margin of more than 11 lakh votes. The current member of parliament for Indore, Mr. Lalwani, beat Sanjay of the Bahujan Samaj Party, who garnered 51,659 votes, with 12,26,751 votes. Mr. Lalwani's victory margin, according to a BJP leader, is likely the "highest" in the nation's electoral history.

In the Lok Sabha elections of 2024, Union Home Minister Amit Shah defeated Congress contender Sonal Patel by a margin of more than 7.4 lakh votes, representing Gujarat's Gandhinagar seat. With 2.66 lakh votes, Congress candidate Sonal Patel was defeated for the seat.

Other Notable Victories

In addition to the candidates who broke records, several other prominent figures achieved noteworthy leads. In Vadodara, Hemang Joshi of the BJP led by more than 5,82,000 votes, while in Noida, Mahesh Sharma had a lead of 5,57,000. Furthermore, Congressman Rahul Gandhi, who ran in Raebareli and Wayanad, won both seats with margins greater than 3,50,000 votes, exceeding the margin of victory in Raebareli held by his mother, Sonia Gandhi.

After securing a simple majority in the 543-member Lok Sabha, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is about to swear in Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a record-breaking third term. This accomplishment represents a critical turning point in Indian political history.

The election results declared on June 4 showed that the NDA did not win by a landslide as most exit polls had indicated, despite the BJP's noteworthy achievements. The Election Commission of India reports that the opposition INDIA group managed to get 231 seats, against all exit poll forecasts, while the NDA managed to secure 295 seats. To establish a government at the Centre, a party or coalition needs to win a minimum of 272 seats.
