NDA Parliamentary Board meeting today, Narendra Modi can stake claim to form government

The freshly elected MPs of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will assemble in Parliament's Central Hall today. According to Jagran, the gathering would discuss the formation of a government on behalf of the Grand Alliance. The NDA won 293 seats in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, giving them a majority. However, the BJP received only 240 seats, which is significantly less than in 2019.

Earlier on Wednesday, the leaders of the parties included in the NDA held a meeting and unanimously elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi as their leader. PM Modi later said that he met our valuable NDA allies. The NDA will work towards building a developed India.

In the Wednesday meeting itself, the allies were told that a formula would be prepared for the division of the cabinet which will be agreed upon. According to unconfirmed sources, instead of any number formula, there is a plan to give proper representation to all the allies.

In such a situation, the party that has up to five members can be given one ministerial post, and JDU and TDP, which have more than them, can be given three ministerial posts each. However, speculations continued that these parties have demanded four ministerial posts and TDP has also demanded the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. Neither of the two parties has formally stated these demands.

According to BJP sources, no demand has been made by these parties so far. A long meeting was also held at the residence of BJP President JP Nadda on Thursday regarding the swearing-in ceremony. Union Home Minister Amit Shah was also present at the meeting. In this meeting, along with preparations, an election review was also done.
