A meeting was held by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday night with top bureaucrats from key ministries. The agenda of the meeting was unknown, which comes ahead of the Lok Sabha election results on May 23. 

This is the first meeting ever held by PM Modi with top bureaucrats after the announcement of General election in March.  

Sources said the Prime Minister is believed to have taken feedback on various issues, including about the state of the economy, from the bureaucrats. 

 "Thirty-six NDA allies were present at the NDA leaders' dinner. Union minister Rajnath Singh said after the meeting that the three NDA allies who were not present, have given their support in writing," Mr. Singh also added that the main idea includes a blueprint to double the income of farmers by 2022. "It also mentions that how India influenced the global discourse especially in the areas of counter-terrorism, money laundering and global warming".

Minister also added, “Where national security is concerned, the NDA government has been firm and I can say that the perception that India is soft on the diplomacy and security front is gone”. Previously, PM Modi and Amit Shah met the Council of Ministers at the BJP headquarters to thank them for their contribution towards the functioning of the NDA government in the last five years.

Rural Development Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, "PM told the Ministers that he was personally indebted to them for all their support in last five years. The good results visible today are because NDA worked hard and every constituent performed as a team." 

For tomorrow's results it has been predicted that exit polls have indicated that the BJP will get a comfortable majority in the just-concluded national elections. The work has been resumed by the Ministers already in their respective departments.  

An aggregate of exit polls predicted the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will win 302 seats and the Congress and its allies 122. Twelve of 14 exit polls predicted that the NDA will get full majority with seats ranging from 282 to 365. An aggregate of exit polls predicted the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will win 302 seats and the Congress and its allies 122. 

A party or an alliance needs 271 seats to form the government, as the elections were held on 542 of the 543 Lok Sabha seats. 

Congratulations Narendra Modi for making it big!!
