Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set for a second term in power following a landslide victory of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in parliamentary elections.
 
On Friday, election commission data showed the Bharatiya Janata Party crossed the half-way mark of 272, required to form the government.
 
The party's tally is most likely to rise further, as the party's candidates were leading in 31 more parliamentary constituencies, and the counting of votes is still underway.
 
Buoyed by the victory, Prime Minister Modi said he wanted to dedicate this victory to his countrymen.
 
Earlier, main opposition party the Indian National Congress President Rahul Gandhi conceded defeat and congratulated Modi over his victory.
