Days after the coalition narrowly won the 2024 assembly elections, President Dhruvadi Murmu asked the BJP's NDA chief - the head of the BJP's National Democratic Alliance - to form the next central government. Mr Modi will be sworn in at 6pm on Sunday along with members of his new cabinet. In a statement from the Rashtrapati Bhavan, Ms Murmu expressed satisfaction that "based on various letters of support, the BJP-led NDA poised to secure majority support in the newly formed 18th Lok Sabha". A stable government." That is why Narendra Modi was appointed Prime Minister of India, the statement said. Modi became Prime Minister three times after Congress President Jawaharlal Nehru.

Speaking to reporters after meeting the President, Mr. Modi said, “This morning, all the parties of the NDA have informed the President that they have elected me as the President. The president called me... and appointed me prime minister. “I told you,” the president said Sunday night. Be calm (at the swearing-in). Modi thanked the voters for giving NDF a third term. "The National Democratic Alliance has the opportunity to serve the nation for the third time. I would like to thank the people of this country for giving us this opportunity. And I want to assure them about the speed of development of the country.” The last two times... we will work with the same speed and commitment. "The NDF government 1, 2, now 3... this is the continuity. . Let's move the country forward... I have 10 years of experience as prime minister and I will use this experience," he said. The Prime Minister-designate likened the new - 18th - Lok Sabha to a young man's "youthful energy and will to do". “In a sense, this is the first Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav election.”

Today, 73-year-old Modi completed the process of being appointed as the new parliamentary leader of the NDA. His candidature was proposed by Rajnath Singh and was supported by all member parties. After his nomination, Modi spoke about coalition politics and said, “Our coalition reflects the spirit of India and is committed to upholding our constitutional values. The NDA is the most successful.” His comments appeared to be an admission of dependence on allies after the BJP enjoyed a clear majority in 2014 and 2019, which allowed it to form a government without active support. In the results announced on Tuesday, the BJP won 240 seats, 32 seats short of a majority. However, with the support of 53 NDA members, the party decided to stay in power for the third consecutive term, making Modi Jawaharlal Nehru's rival for a third term as Prime Minister.

The support of 16 TDP MPs to new Chief Minister Andhrabu Naidu and 12 JDU MPs to Bihar Chief Minister will ensure that the BJP can form and rule the government for a full five years. That's why it's so important. If these 28 seats are eliminated, this number will be reduced to 265 seats. All eyes are now on the negotiations between the BJP and its two main allies, each eyeing top Cabinet seats and, in the case of the TDP, Parliament seats. The leader of the Shiv Sena faction led by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Chirag Paswan of the Lok Sabha, which has seven and five MPs respectively, are also making intensive efforts to "foster forward". In his speech, Mr. Modi repeatedly criticized the Congress and India's opposition bloc for defying election poll predictions and posing a strong challenge to the BJP. The bloc has 232 seats, including a victory for the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, a defeat for the Trinamool where the BJP lost six seats in Bengal, and the DMK in Tamil Nadu, again including a BJP defeat.

On the other hand, the Congress won 99 out of 328 seats. This was the party's best result in the last 15 years. He won 44 games in 2014 and 52 games in 2019. There were also speculations that the party might approach Nitish Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu for talks, but these were dismissed.
