People celebrating, although be it quietly outside party headquarters, went into the night. India selection has been no small undertaking. It is the world’s largest Democratic exercise above 900 million eligible to vote, and many did. The voter turnout, 67 % the highest in India’s history, seems to cover the election campaign and now sums up the results from New Delhi actually pointed to this kind of Victory. There was still some skepticism as to whether those numbers are correct and if you kind of imagined, obviously it’s some of that skepticism being on the opposition side. But as you say, those numbers are coming in in line with what we heard on son and people here from very early this morning. Who are supporters of the ruling party BJP we’re out celebrating already, even before the numbers have started rolling in in a serious way.
