New Delhi, May 24 (IANS) With the completion of counting for the general election on Friday, the final tally of Bharatiya Janata Party settled at 303 seats. According to the data released by the Election Commission on Friday evening, the saffron surge took a leap from its 282 seats in 2014.

M.K. Stalin-led Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam won 23 seats in Tamil Nadu, reducing its rival AIADMK to just a single seat.

Nitish Kumar-led Janta Dal (United) won 16 seats, steering the BJP-JDU alliance to a thumping victory in the state. The alliance decimated the Congress-led ‘mahagathbandhan’ to just one seat and Tejashvi Yadav-led RJD drawing a blank.

Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress secured 22 seats of the 25 in Andhra Pradesh and managed to get 49.1 per cent vote share.

A close ally of BJP, Shiv Sena won 18 seats in Maharashtra with a vote share of 23.3 per cent in the state.

Naveen Patnaik-led Biju Janta Dal (BJD) won on 12 seats in Odisha with a vote share of 42.76 per cent.

The ‘mahagathbandhan’ suffered a major setback in Uttar Pradesh, with Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) winning 10 seats while Samajwadi Party (SP) being reduced to just five seats.

The other parties including the Aam Aadmi Party, Telangana Rashtra Samiti, Nationalist Congress Party, Lok Jan Shakti Party and others were reduced to single digit figures.
