A day after Bharatiya Janata Party came out as a victor in the Lok Sabha elections, president Donald Trump on Saturday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a "great man" and "leader". Trump also telephoned Modi to once again congratulate him for their strong showing in elections.

"Just spoke to Prime Minister @NarendraModi where I congratulated him on his big political victory. He is a great man and leader for the people of India - they are lucky to have him!" tweeted Trump.

Modi-led BJP has swept the 17th Lok Sabha elections, garnering 303 seats. The saffron party, along with its allies, have secured 352 seats out of 542.

Meanwhile, the United States State Department has also congratulated PM Modi on his electoral victory and highlighted that the Indian elections "serve as an inspiration to democracies and individuals around the world."

Scores of world leaders, right from Japan in the East to Canada in the West, have wished the Bharatiya Janata Party leader for securing a resounding mandate in the latest Indian general elections.
