Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday congratulated Britain PM for winning UK general election with a thumping majority. Wishing Johnson as the election results showed Boris Johnson-led Conservatives securing historic Parliamentary majority, PM Modi wrote: “Many congratulations to PM @BorisJohnson for his return with a thumping majority.”

“I wish him the best and look forward to working together for closer India-UK ties,” PM Narendra Modi said on Twitter.

It has already become clear that the 2019 general election represents one of the more significant moments in postwar British politics: where the shock waves triggered by the result of the 2016 Brexit referendum have translated into a Conservative landslide in England and Wales and disaster for the Labour party. Nearly 35 years after the end of the miners’ strike and the ensuing closure of the country’s pits, angry, frustrated voters in seats such as Blyth Valley, in Northumberland, have been prepared to elect a Conservative MP to end the Brexit wrangling – and to send Labour the message: we are not prepared to elect you.

The latest predictions, after 630 results declared, put the Conservatives in line for 364 seats, the party’s best result since Margaret Thatcher’s third election win in 1987, made all the better for the party given it was on track to lose most of its seats in Scotland to the resurgent SNP.

Britain Prime Minister Boris Johnson won a resounding election victory on Friday which will now allow him to take Britain out of the European Union in a matter of weeks.

For Johnson, whose 20-week tenure in power has been marked by chaotic scenes in parliament and stark division on the streets over Britain’s tortuous departure from the European Union, victory in Thursday’s contest was vindication.

Educated at the country’s most elite school and recognizable by his bombastic style, the 55-year-old must not only deliver Brexit but also convince Britons that the contentious divorce, which would lead to lengthy trade talks, is worth it.

A landslide Conservative win marks the ultimate failure of opponents of Britain’s departure from the European Union who plotted to thwart a 2016 referendum vote through legislative combat in parliament and prompted some of the biggest protests in recent British history.

Johnson won an outright majority in the 650-seat parliament after an exit poll showed the Conservatives on course to win a landslide 368 seats, the biggest Conservative national election win since Margaret Thatcher’s 1987 triumph.

“I think this will turn out to be a historic election that gives us now, in this new government, the chance to respect the democratic will of the British people,” Johnson said after winning his seat of Uxbridge.

He said the Conservatives appeared to have won “a powerful new mandate to get Brexit done”.
