New Delhi: In the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, BJP had given the slogan of '400 Paar'. In most of the exit polls that came after the elections, the BJP-led NDA was estimated to get more than three hundred and fifty seats. However, when the counting of votes started on June 4, the results were completely opposite. BJP remained far from majority on its own. NDA's seats also appeared to be around 300. In this election, the public has given full support to the opposition Bharat Alliance. While BJP has taken a lead in 244 seats, 98 seats are seen going to the account of Congress. In UP, Samajwadi Party is leading in 34 seats. At the same time, TMC is ahead in 29 seats in West Bengal. DMK is ahead in 22 seats in Tamil Nadu. Overall, most of the parties involved in the Bharat Alliance performed strongly. However, the role of three states is very important in the return of the BJP-led NDA alliance to power. If the party had not performed strongly with its alliance partners in these three states, then the path to forming the government at the Center would also have become difficult. These three states are Bihar, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha.
