Narendra Modi addressed his first-ever press conference as prime minister in his five-year tenure on May 17, but didn’t take any questions from reporters. He instead directed them to BJP president Amit Shah. The PM, however, briefed the reporters and said “the people of the country have decided that a BJP government will be formed. “I hope that the new government will start functioning at the earliest,” PM Narendra Modi said.

This is how many, including the Congress president , reacted on Twitter.
