Congress-led UPA to form government, NDA loses

The Congress-led UPA coalition was all set to form the next government at the Centre. The trends indicated a clear victory for Congress against the BJP-led NDA.

As the counting of votes began, it was clear that the Congress was winning convincingly across the country. The revival in Uttar Pradesh was specially striking as the party was set to win over 20 seats.

For the BJP, losses in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, proved costly. In Maharashtra, Raj Thackeray's MNS spoiled the chances of Shiv Sena and BJP. The trends for the first 500 seats suggested that the Congress was likely to form government with the help of its allies.

The SP suffered minor losses but still remained a force. The BSP didn't do as well as was expected. Overall, the Indian electorate appears to have voted for Manmohan Singh's government.
