Preparations for a grand celebration are in full swing among India’s Bharatiya Janata Party workers and supporters after the party and its allies are heading for a victory for the second successive term.

The arrangements include a 7-kg special laddoo cake and nine other similar cakes of around 4-5 kg that will be cut at the central office in the evening on Thursday the cake costs Rs 1,000 per kg, the NDTV reports.

Other sweets include lotus shaped confectioneries, all ordered from Bengali Pastry Shop.

Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor has also ordered 50 kg of pista-badam barfi, which costs Rs 2,000 per kg, the NDTV reported.

The party seems confident of a win after exit poll results predicted a landslide win for the BJP and its alliance NDA.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led party will win almost as many seats as it did in 2014 and form a government comfortably, exit polls predicted on Sunday at the end of the national election. The poll of polls, an aggregate of exit polls, gives the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) 302 of 543 seats and the Congress and its allies 122.

Celebrations had begun a couple of days after the Exit Poll results in Mumbai when a BJP candidate ordered about 2,000 kg of laddoos. Men wearing Narendra Modi masks were photographed preparing the laddoos, the Indian online news portal reported.

These sweets will be distributed on May 23, when the results of the national elections will be declared.

The Lok Sabha elections concluded on May 19 after a marathon seven-phased elections. Around 90 crore people were eligible to vote in the elections this year and recorded a turnout of 67.11 percent. The results will be declared on Thursday.
