New DelhiThe leaders of National Democratic Alliance are likely to meet on May 21, ahead of counting of votes on May 23.

Most of the exit polls on the last day of voting predicted return of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister.
Sources in the NDA camp said the meeting was convened to chalk out its strategy in wake of the poll outcome.

BJP, Congress say results will be better than exit polls  

Twelve of 14 exit polls predicted the NDA getting a full majority with seats ranging seats from 282 to 365. A party or an alliance needs 271 seats to form the government as Lok Sabha elections have been held on 542 of 543 seats.

The exit polls predicted the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance getting 82 to 165 seats. Six exit polls predicted that “other” parties were likely to get more seats than the the UPA.
