The saffron splash across a swathe of northern, eastern and western India has sent BJP's voteshare soaring. With gains in new areas, the BJP voteshare nationally has risen from 31% to 38%. Of the 60.37 crore votes polled in this election, more than 22.6 crores have gone to the BJP — a 32% increase over the 17.1 crore votes it got five years ago. Not only this, BJP chief Amit Shah noted on Thursday that BJP got over 50% voteshare in 17 states across the country. In contrast, Congress has managed only a marginal improvement in its vote share from 2014 — by around 2.6% to gather 22.07%
