Modi vows 'inclusive' future amidst India poll victory

Amidst his landslide win during the Indian General Election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has vowed an 'inclusive' future.

According to Election Commission data based on votes counted so far, Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is on course to win around 300 of 543 elected seats in India's lower house, surpassing its 2014 victory and crushing the opposition Congress party's hopes of a comeback.

"Together we grow. Together we prosper. Together we will build a strong and inclusive India. India wins yet again!," Modi tweeted after votes counted so far pointed to a BJP landslide.

Modi ally and BJP party boss Amit Shah tweeted that the election results, which are yet to be finalised, were a victory "for all of India".
