New Delhi: The waiting is over. In a short while, trends of the Lok Sabha election 2019 will give way to results. There may be some delay in the final count out of 542 seats, as has already been announced by the Election Commission.

The Election Commission has expressed the hope that the final results of the counting of votes may take up to 10 o’clock in the evening or more. However, the trends will turn to results in a little while.

At the time of filing of this report, the NDA was leading in 328 of the seats. The UPA score (104) is less than that of the “others” (110).

The BJP may well break its record of 2014. It is leading in 28o seats as of now. The vote share of the party has gone higher than the level of five years ago.

Congress has improved its tally, but not remarkably. From 44 in 2014, it is now leading in 61 seats. Much of these additional seats have come from Tamil Nadu where its alliance with the DMK has caught the anti-incumbent mood against the AIADMK.

For the past four days, the opposition has been speaking a defeatist language, crying foul over EVM ‘tampering’ ― as though they already knew before 23 May that they had lost the election.

In the meantime, the home ministry asked the chief secretaries and DGPs of all the States and Union Territories of the country to be alert in view of the fears of violence on Thursday. Upendra Kushwaha in Bihar, who recently came out of the NDA with his RLSP, has indicated there could be violence in the streets if the election result goes against his party.

Since the law and order is completely under the State government, they have been asked to maintain peace on the day of the vote counting. The DGPs and chief secretaries have been asked to keep a sufficient number of policemen in the counting centres so that any unpleasant event could be stopped.

In the Lok Sabha election, counting of 542 parliamentary seats in the country started on Thursday at 8 AM. Due to the first time matching of the voter-verified paper audit papers (VVPAT) with EVM calculation, there is a possibility of the final result emerging not before late evening.
