The entire nation came alive on seeing the dance of democracy unfold in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The party in power was humbled by the results but is basking in the victory as they get re-elected for the third consecutive term, meanwhile the opposition has laid its foundations stronger than the previous elections.

Contrary to the exit poll predictions of BJP sweeping the majority share, the people’s poll has woven an unexpected reality for the nation. 

Despite the BJP’s inability to reach the majority threshold of 272 seats, despite the readiness of the ruling alliance to establish the government, this stands in stark contrast to the BJP’s strong performance in 2019 when it independently secured 303 seats, leading the NDA alliance to surpass the 350-seat mark.

The BJP faces notable setbacks in its traditional strongholds of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Rajasthan, while showing significant progress in states like Odisha, Telangana, and Kerala, reflecting a varied electoral performance regionally.

Meanwhile, the united opposition bloc, operating under the umbrella of INDIA, motivated by their joint opposition to the BJP and its policies, has taken the lead in around 230 seats. This coalition has made significant advancements across several states, presenting a substantial challenge to the BJP’s rule.

The NDA government formation and the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Narendra Modi are expected to be held on June 8. Congratulations by world leaders are on the way for PM Modi. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy tweeted, “I wish the people of India peace and prosperity, and I hope for continued cooperation between our countries. May our partnership continue to thrive, bringing progress and mutual understanding for our nations…we also look forward to seeing India attend the Peace Summit.”

The Union Cabinet meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has commenced to review the Lok Sabha election results and propose the dissolution of the current 17th Lok Sabha, following the declaration of general election results yesterday. The meeting is being held at the Prime Minister’s residence at Lok Kalyan Marg, with indications that Modi will recommend the dissolution of the parliament, which concludes its term on June 16.

Meanwhile, the opposition is celebrating their sincere efforts. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra lauded her brother, Rahul Gandhi, for his victory in both the constituencies he contested in, and the Congress party’s enhanced performance in the Lok Sabha elections. She praised his resilience amid skepticism and propaganda, hailing him as courageous and unwavering in pursuing truth. Priyanka termed Rahul as the “bravest of all,” emphasizing his commitment to tackling challenges with love and kindness, expressing immense pride in his character.

The INDIA Alliance will convene at 6 PM today at the home of Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge to deliberate on the election outcomes and plan their strategy moving forward.

“Sarkar toh ab banegi hi,” remarked Nitish Kumar, the Chief Minister of Bihar and leader of JD(U), upon his arrival in Delhi for the NDA meeting. Interestingly, he was seen travelling to Delhi with RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav. When questioned about the possibility of the INDIA alliance forming the government at the Centre, RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav advised, “Have some patience. Wait & watch.”
