    From the G20 nations, Prime Ministers of Italy and Japan, along with the President of South Korea, have also extended their congratulations to the Prime Minister.
    African leaders, including Presidents of Nigeria, Kenya, and Comoros, have joined in expressing their warm regards to PM Modi.
    Similarly, leaders from the Caribbean, such as those from Jamaica, Barbados, and Guyana, have also conveyed their congratulatory messages. From Southeast Asia, Prime Ministers of Singapore and Malaysia have joined the chorus in congratulating PM Modi on his electoral victory.
    The congratulatory messages come in the wake of the mammoth seven-phase Lok Sabha elections, touted as the world's largest democratic exercise, which commenced on April 19 and concluded on Saturday.
    While most exit polls had predicted a comfortable victory for the ruling BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), the official results revealed the BJP securing 240 seats, lower than its 2019 tally of 303. However, the Congress party witnessed significant growth, clinching 99 seats, while the INDIA bloc exceeded the 230 mark, defying earlier predictions and posing formidable competition to NDA's 292 seats
    As PM Modi gears up for his third consecutive term, the outpouring of congratulatory messages from global leaders underscores the significance of India's role on the world stage and highlights the strong bilateral relations fostered under his leadership.
