Modi: ‘We will always work for the people’

Narendra Modi claims his party “will always work for the people” after comfortably winning India’s general election.

The BJP claimed a majority of over 300 in a landslide victory.

Modi, who will serve a second five-year term, told a rapturous crowd in Delhi that it was “the people of this country who have emerged victorious.”

The election was seen as a referendum on Modi, a Hindu nationalist whose party is accused of stoking religious divisions during its five years in power. The party says it governs for all Indians.
