Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has secured another five-year term after winning the election by a landslide. With 900 million eligible voters, the election for India's lower house of parliament is the largest election the world has ever seen. Mr Modi's BJP is projected to win 350 seats in the 543 seat parliament, while the main opposition Congress party is expected to win fewer than 60. Narendra Modi spoke earlier this morning - his words are translated.
