BJP suffered due to unity of opposition parties

  • For the first time, Modi will form a coalition government

Special representative, New Delhi
If the results of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections have to be analyzed in one line, then it will be said that the opposition parties prevented the BJP from getting a majority by forming an alliance.

Especially the way the Congress and Samajwadi Party alliance did social engineering in Uttar Pradesh, the BJP has suffered a decisive loss in the country’s largest state. The National Democratic Alliance i.e. NDA has definitely got a majority but the BJP has not been able to get a majority on its own. Therefore, there is no doubt that the biggest blow of the election result has been to the BJP. The unity of opposition parties in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Haryana has caused heavy losses to the BJP. Mamata Banerjee’s strategy was successful in West Bengal. By not forming an alliance with the Congress and the Left parties, she divided the votes against her. The result was that this time the BJP has lost 6 seats in West Bengal as compared to 2019. In Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Gujarat and New Delhi, BJP has registered a one-sided victory on the strength of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s charisma and strong organization. Whereas in Rajasthan, BJP has suffered due to wrong ticket distribution and Jat’s displeasure. Rupala’s statement caused loss to BJP in Rajasthan.

Rahul Gandhi established in national politics

It is clear from the election results that Congress has almost doubled its seats. The credit for Congress’ victory will definitely go to Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo and Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra. Apart from this, the way Rahul raised the issue of Constitution and reservation being abolished in his meetings has had an impact on the Dalit voters of Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. Rahul Gandhi has established himself as the second popular leader after Narendra Modi in national politics. If he takes the responsibility of the Leader of Opposition, then Rahul will be seen standing strongly against Modi in the 2029 elections.

BJP did not get absolute majority

Narendra Modi took oath as the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2001. He has held the post of Chief Minister in Gujarat with absolute majority thrice. After this, in 2014 and 2019, he has run the central government with full majority. But now he will have to run the government with the help of allies because BJP has not got a full majority. BJP will always need the support of Janata Dal United and Telugu Desam Party. Obviously, this will also affect the formation of the Union Cabinet.
