PM Narendra Modi congratulates Boris Johnson for getting Majority Victory

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday congratulated Britain PM for winning UK general election with a thumping majority. Wishing Johnson as the election results showed Boris Johnson-led Conservatives securing historic Parliamentary majority, PM Modi wrote: "Many congratulations to PM @BorisJohnson for his return with a thumping majority."

"I wish him the best and look forward to working together for closer India-UK ties," PM Narendra Modi said on Twitter.

Britain Prime Minister Boris Johnson won a resounding election victory on Friday which will now allow him to take Britain out of the European Union in matter of weeks.

For Johnson, whose 20-week tenure in power has been marked by chaotic scenes in parliament and stark division on the streets over Britain's tortuous departure from the European Union, victory in Thursday's contest was vindication.
