Now joining the bandwagon is actor Akshay Kumar who forwarded heartiest congratulations to the Prime Minister. The actor who seems to be happy with the Nation's decision, addressed a recent Tweet to the Prime Minister hailing him for all his efforts to advance the nation.
The actor wrote, "Heartiest congratulations Hon. Prime Minister @narendramodi ji on the historic win. All your efforts to advance the nation and put it on the global map have been acknowledged. Wishing you an even more successful second term."

Recently, actor Akshay Kumar was dragged into controversy after he conducted a non-political interview with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ahead of the 2019 General Elections. The actor was criticized widely for asking non-significant questions to PM Modi. However, the actor's admiration or the PM seems to be completely unaffected and the recent Tweet is definitely the proof.
While the counting of votes is in progress under tight security, the latest trends available for the 542 constituencies show Bharatiya Janata Party winning the general elections.
As the lower house from 29 states and 7 Union Territories (UTs) went to polls, nearly 10 lakh polling booths were set up around the country. As per media reports, around 84 million more voters were in the fray to exercise their franchise than the previous elections. With the nation having concluded the seven phases of the Lok Sabha elections 2019 in a period of 39 days, it is now ready to welcome the next government and consequently the next Prime Minister of the country.
The 2019 elections saw high-octane electric campaigning from both sides as the BJP went hammer and tongs, expressing confidence at each turn that it would not only repeat but also better its tally of 282 votes from five years earlier, whereas the Congress and other Opposition parties, also campaigned heavily though without being able to make any convincing show of unity. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking a second term in the Parliament, addressed a total of 144 rallies and roadshows this election season, Congress president Rahul Gandhi addressed 125 rallies in the 2019 polls.
