The nation saw election mania like never before when the Bharatiya Janata Party, led by its prime minister designate, progressed toward a thumping victory on Friday. Decoding the results of Elections 2014 was not an easy task for people who were grappling with a barrage of numbers in the first few hours. That’s when HT played saviour.
