India election: Sonia Gandhi concedes defeat

The opposition Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has called its predicted landslide win in India's election a "people's victory".

Votes counted so far suggest the BJP is on course for the most resounding victory by any party for 30 years, trouncing the outgoing Congress Party.

Accepting defeat, Congress President Sonia Gandhi said she took responsibility for the defeat but "respected the verdict of the people".
