Narendra Modi elected as NDA leader, poised to become PM for rare 3rd term

| @indiablooms | 07 Jun 2024, 01:11 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) stalwart Narendra Modi was on Friday elected as the leader of the ruling coalition NDA, paving way for his consecutive third term.

Modi will be the second politician after Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru to become Prime Minister for the third consecutive term.

However, unlike his previous two terms, Modi this time requires the support of his allies to form government as the BJP stopped at 240, 32 short of the majority mark (272).

The TDP (16 seats), JDU (12 seats), Eknath Shinde faction of Shiv Sena (7 seats) and Chirag Paswan's Lok Janshakti Party-Ram Vilas (5 seats) have emerged as the kingmakers.

In his address to the NDA MP-elects, Modi said, "This alliance is a reflection of the spirit and soul of India."

"Pre-poll alliance has never been so successful as it happened with NDA," he added. 

Revealing his plans for the next term, the Prime Minister-elect said, "I say with a lot of responsibility, good governance, development, quality of life among people, reduction of government interference in the lives of middle and upper-middle class will be our goals."

"We will fulfill the dream of Viksit Bharat," he added.
