NDA’s newly elected MPs enter Parliament for a meeting

07-Jun-2024, Fri.

The newly elected National Democratic Alliance (NDA) MPs entered the Parliament building for a crucial meeting on Wednesday. 

 

This meeting comes after the NDA unanimously passed a resolution to elect Narendra Modi as their leader for the third time. During the meeting, the NDA leaders expressed their admiration for Prime Minister Modi’s leadership and the progress made by the nation under his guidance over the past decade. The NDA’s decision to re-elect Modi as their leader was taken during a crucial meeting held at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Delhi on Wednesday. The meeting of the newly elected NDA MPs in Parliament is a significant step in the formation of the 18th Lok Sabha.

 

Earlier on Wednesday, President Droupadi Murmu dissolved the 17th Lok Sabha on the recommendation of the Union Cabinet. PM Modi also tendered his resignation along with his Council of Ministers to President Murmu, who accepted the resignation and requested that the Prime Minister and his Council of Ministers continue until the new government assumes office. The counting of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections was held on Tuesday, with the BJP winning 240 seats, much lower than its 2019 tally of 303. The Congress, on the other hand, registered a strong growth, winning 99 seats. The INDIA bloc crossed the 230 mark, posing stiff competition and defying all predictions.

 

The meeting of the newly elected NDA MPs in Parliament is a crucial step in the formation of the new government, as the President will invite the largest party to form the government after receiving the comprehensive list of newly-elected MPs from the Chief Election Commissioner.
