Historic Third Term

Narendra Modi's oath marked a historic moment as he became the Prime Minister for a record third term. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) secured 293 seats in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, with the BJP alone winning 240 seats, falling short of the majority mark of 272 in the Lok Sabha. This scenario sets the stage for strategic alliances and parliamentary dynamics in the coming term.
