Finally 'this time, cross 400', Congress leader Shashi Tharoor took a dig at BJP regarding UK elections


New Delhi : Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Friday took a dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after the Labour Party's landslide victory in the general elections in Britain. Referring to the UK election results, Tharoor said that 'Ab ki baar, 400 paar' has finally happened, but in another country. Before the Lok Sabha elections, PM Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders had claimed that it would get more than 370 seats, while the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) would 'cross 400'.

BJP reduced to 240

In last month's elections, the BJP won 240 seats, just short of a majority, but the NDA secured a majority with 293 seats. The Congress got 99 seats while the opposition alliance Bharat won 234 seats. “Finally 'Ab Ki Baar 400 Paar' (crossing 400) – but in another country!” Tharoor said in a post on X.

The number of votes that the Labour Party needs to form a government in Britain, in India it would have to be limited to just 5 Lok Sabha seats!

Labour Party wins in Britain

Labour Party leader Keir Starmer has officially become the new Prime Minister of Britain after meeting King Charles III at Buckingham Palace. His party has won Britain's historic general election. The Labour Party has won 412 seats in the 650-member 'House of Commons'. This number is 211 more seats than the seats won in the last election in 2019.

Rishi Sunak's Conservative Party won 121 seats, which is 250 less than the seats won in the last election. The Labour Party's vote percentage was 33.7, while the Conservative Party's vote percentage was 23.7.
