India held general elections for six weeks starting April 19 — the biggest democratic exercise in the world.

At the end of the tallying of votes last Tuesday, Modi won a third straight term, making him the country's first prime minister to do so in more than 60 years.

Diplomatic relations between the Philippines and India span over 70 years since it was formalized in 1949.
