The resounding victory of the BJP under PM Narendra Modi has been clinical. They not only swept away Delhi with all the seven seats and more than 53 percent vote share but rippled the Congress party in Rajasthan who recently won the assembly polls with a thumping margin and displaced Vasundhara Raje government from the state. This time they repeated the 2014 mandate and swept away all the 25 seats at stake.
