Edappadi K Palaniswami
Tamilnadu Chief Minister
The people of our country have honoured you (Modi) with a second consecutive term. I wish you and the Government of India under your stewardship the very best.
Deputy Chief Minister
I would like to convey my hearty congratulations for your spectacular performance and landslide victory in the 17th Lok Sabha elections. I am sure that the decisive mandate given by the citizens of India, brushing aside the false propaganda by the Opposition parties, would inspire you to continue your good efforts to lead our country on the path of peace and prosperity.
M K Stalin
I congratulate Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his victory. We hope and wish he will provide a progressive government based on the principles of democracy and inclusivity.
On Lok Sabha results in Tamilnadu:
With folded hands, we accept the resounding victory given to the DMK alliance by the people of Tamilnadu. During the next five years, we will work hard to fulfil the promises made and protect the interests of our State.
I extend my wishes to BJP which has won in the Lok Sabha elections. The victory of DMK in Lok Sabha elections prove that Tamilnadu functions independently.
K S Alagiri
It was a fight between two ideologies, Prime Minister Narendra Modi won and India has lost.
BJP State president
My view on the (Tamilnadu) poll result is that people have committed a mistake because if they had voted for someone not accused of corruption or selfish politics, people would have reaped more benefits.
DMK chief MK Stalin will soon become the next Chief Minister. He has been recognised as a leader who would guide Tamilnadu and protect it as well as the Dravidian movement.
Although the entire country is sailing in one direction, this election proves that religious propaganda will not work in the land of Tamils and that Tamilnadu always upholds social justice.
Dr S Ramadoss
PMK wholeheartedly extends its greetings to Narendra Modi for winning in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. He has been elected once again because he fulfilled the promises made in the previous polls.

As taught by Amma (Jayalalithaa), we will rise again like the phoenix. With continuous efforts, we will win the hearts of the Tamil people and AMMK will give voice to the problems of the State always.
