New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi won an emphatic mandate on Thursday for a second consecutive term in general elections. Modi called it a "victory of honest people’s hope,” while Congress President Rahul Gandhi and AICC general secretary in-charge Uttar Pradesh (east) and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra congratulated the Prime Minister on his second term.

The front pages of the national dailies printed the resurgence of Modi. International media too covered Modi's return for the second time. Have a look:


Pakistan daily 'Dawn' ran the story with the header 'Modi wins second term by landslide, pledges inclusive govt'.

"In projecting himself as the choreographer of air raids on Balakot across the border, Mr Modi severely bruised a fractious and unequal opposition. Congress president Rahul Gandhi lost his traditional seat in Amethi but was expected to win in Muslim-dominated Wayanad in Kerala while Mr Modi looked poised to sweep in Varanasi," the DAWN wrote.
