Prime minister Narendra Modi met president Droupadi Murmu and tendered his resignation along with that of his council of ministers on Wednesday, a day after the vote was counted in the General Elections. The President has urged him to continue till the next government is formed.

“The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, met the President today and tendered his resignation along with the Council of Ministers. The President has accepted the resignation and requested Shri Narendra Modi and the Council of Ministers to continue till the new Government assumes office,” an official communiqué from the Rashtrapati Bhavan said.
The term of 17th Lok Sabha is due to expire on June 16, and the process to form the next government is on. With the election results coming in, the two chief alliances – NDA and INDIA – were busy chalking out plans ahead.

While the BJP has emerged as the largest party, it has fallen short of majority as it has only 240 seats. The NDA led by him has 293 seats, which should lead them comfortably to the formation of the next government.

The leading opposition party, the Congress, won 99 seats and its alliance 232 – neither of which figure is sufficient for a stake at government formation.
