Most exit polls have predicted another term for the PM Modi, with some of them projecting that the BJP-led NDA would get more than 300 Seats to comfortably cross the majority mark of 272 in the Lok Sabha.

The BJP would win big, the pollsters have predicted with the party increasing its tally compared last time.

In Karnataka, speculation is rife in political circles that any adverse results for Congress-JD(S) alliance in this polls, would have its implications on the longevity of the Kumaraswamy-led government.

Similar is the case in Madhya Pradesh presently under Congress’ Kamal Nath.

The dinner at Delhi’s Ashoka Hotel – hosted by Amit Shah — comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Mr Shah met the central ministers at the BJP headquarters in Delhi.

It is also expected to draw certain strategies session, even though Sunday’s exit polls predicted a comfortable victory for the BJP.

“Thirty-six NDA allies were present at the NDA leaders’ dinner today. Three NDA allies who were not present, have given their support in writing,” Union minister Rajnath Singh said after the meeting.

The dinner is being attended by most NDA leaders, many of whom arrived at the national capital this morning.

The guest list includes the BJP’s Punjab ally, Akali leader Parkash Singh Badal and his son Sukhbir Badal; Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, Ram Vilas Paswan and his son Chirag Paswan; AIADMK’s E Palaniswamy and O Pannerselvam, Apna Dal leader Anupriya Patel and Ramdas Athawale.
