Bangalore, May 17: Being in India, it's impossible to survive in the country without media and for gaining a landslide victory like Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha election, media is one of the main instruments for one to achieve his/her dream(s). Even, the PM-to-be Modi, during his first ever press conference after the poll victory, admitted that media has played a great role in his journey from Gujarat to Delhi.
The entire country has been celebrating BJP's victory as the party-led NDA alliance won 337 seats while Congress-led UPA alliance managed to grab 58 seats only.The only non-Congress formation to have got a majority, so far, was Janata Party which had achieved the feat in 1977. But given that it was a combination of four parties, Modi-led BJP's Friday victory marked the first instance where a party other than Congress has got past the majority mark on its own steam.
Indian media covered the entire election, especially Modi's journey from the day one. See, how Indian Media Reacted To Modi's victory just a day after results of Lok Sabha election was announced:
