NDA is an organic alliance: Modi who is set to become PM for 3rd term with allies' support

New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi on Friday called the BJP-led NDA "organic alliance" after he was elected as the leader of the ruling coalition in one step closer to becoming the premier of the country for a rare third consecutive term.

In his address to the NDA MP-elects, Modi called the alliance "organic".

"This alliance is a reflection of the spirit and soul of India," Modi said.

"All members of Parliament irrespective of their parties are all equal to me. This is why the NDA alliance has been going on for 30 years," the Prime Minister-elect added.

Revealing his plans for the next tenure, Modi said, "I say with a lot of responsibility that 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."

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 speech, Modi  took a dig at opposition over their repeated aspersions on EVM tampering.

Speaking at the NDA parliamentary meeting in New Delhi, PM Modi said: “When results were coming out on 4th June, phone calls started coming on the figures. Then I asked someone: the numbers are fine but tell me if EVM (Electronic Voting Machine) alive or dead?” “The opposition was planning to take out funeral of EVM this time, Modi said taking a swipe at the Opposition.
