European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen congratulates Modi, praises Indian democracy

| @indiablooms | 07 Jun 2024, 07:50 pm

European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for winning the general polls and appreciated the Indian democracy and the conduct of the world’s largest elections.

During the conversation, PM Modi expressed his gratitude to President von der Leyen for her warm wishes and underlined the strong India-EU ties based on shared values and principles.

"Prime Minister noted that this year marked the 20th anniversary of the India-EU Strategic Partnership and reaffirmed his commitment to continue to work for further strengthening the partnership for global good," read the government statement.

Prime Minister conveyed his best wishes  for the European Parliament Elections which commence today.

Modi will be the second politician after Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru to become Prime Minister for the third consecutive term.

However, unlike his previous two terms, Modi this time requires the support of his allies to form government as the BJP stopped at 240, 32 short of the majority mark (272).

The TDP (16 seats), JDU (12 seats), Eknath Shinde faction of Shiv Sena (7 seats) and Chirag Paswan's Lok Janshakti Party-Ram Vilas (5 seats) have emerged as the kingmakers.
