Indian PM Modi on verge of 'massive' election win

India's Prime Minister Narenda Modi is storming towards a huge election win.

Offficial data showed his party ahead with well over 272 seats on Thursday (May 23) morning - the magic number needed for a majority in the lower house of parliament.

While the last of some 600 million votes were still being counted, India's foreign minister congratulated Modi on his ''massive victory.'' In response, Modi promised to build a strong and inclusive nation in his second term as prime minister.

Seeing no need to wait until the count's conclusion, these supporters of Modi's Hindu-nationalist BJP party took to the streets to celebrate on Thursday morning.

A BJP win would spell the first back-to-back majority for a single party since 1984.

Indian stock markets rose to record highs, and the rupee and bonds rallied in light of the predicted political continuity.

900 million people were eligible to vote in the mammoth seven-phased election.

10 percent more than five years ago.
