Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated British Prime Minister Boris Johnson who is set to return to power with a thumping majority.
Wishing him the best, in a tweet, PM Modi said, he is looking forward to work together for closer India-UK ties.
Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party has won a solid majority of seats in Britain’s Parliament. He has won the historic UK General Election as his Conservative Party crossed the magic number of 326 required for a majority in the Parliament.
The victory would mean that they will plough ahead with the Brexit, dashing all chances of a second referendum over the issue.
This was Britain’s third general election in a little more than four years, and the second since the June 2016 Brexit referendum.
