New Delhi : Common Minimum Programme, coalition Dharma, making allies angry or happy, bargaining, magic number, with whom, who is with whom, will the government survive…these words are going to return to national politics after 10 years. BJP may have missed the majority on its own, but Narendra Modi is going to become the Prime Minister, but his third term may prove to be full of thorns. The real challenge may be allies like Nitish Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu, who have the image of being ruthless bargainers and changing the boat in the middle of the journey. In the third term, Narendra Modi's hands will be tied, for bold decisions and reforms, he will have to convince his allies first. They will have to agree to their conditions. To ensure that the stability of the government is not affected, BJP will try to expand its clan. This time 17 such MPs have won, who are neither from NDA nor from All India Alliance. Who are these other MPs and how many of them can prove to be saviors for the Modi government if needed, let's see.Who are the other 17 'MPs'?

1- Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav from Purnia, Bihar. He may have contested and won the election against the Bharat Gathbandhan candidate, but on Wednesday he attended the alliance meeting. There is no question of him going to the NDA side.

2- Vishal Dada Prakash Babu Patil. He has been elected MP from Sangli (Maharashtra). He is a Congress rebel. On Thursday, he met Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in Delhi and announced his support to the Congress.

3- Amrit Pal Singh. He is an open supporter of separatism. He won from Khadoor Sahib in Punjab. He is the leader of 'Waris Punjab De' and is currently lodged in Assam jail under NSA. There is no question of him joining the NDA. The Modi government itself will avoid taking his support under any circumstances.

4- Sarabjit Singh Khalsa. Son of Indira Gandhi's assassin Beant Singh and a supporter of Khalistan. Won the election from Faridkot in Punjab. There is no question of joining NDA.

5- Umeshbhai Babubhai Patel. Independent MP from Daman and Diu. Patel, a businessman by profession, has defeated three-time BJP MP Lalubhai Patel. He may or may not go with the BJP. Generally, independent MPs prefer to go with the government so that they get a chance to bring development in their area.

6- Abdul Rashid Sheikh alias Rashid Engineer. Hardcore Pakistan supporter and separatist. Currently in jail on charges of terror funding. Won as an independent candidate from Baramulla seat of Jammu and Kashmir. Defeated National Conference veteran Omar Abdullah. There is no question of supporting the Modi government.

7- Mohammad Hanifa. He has won the election from Ladakh. He is a former leader of the National Conference, who rebelled after being upset with the alliance with Congress. There is a fifty-fifty chance of him joining both the All India Alliance camp and the NDA.

An MP from Azad Samaj Party(Kanshi Ram)
8- Chandrashekhar. Won from UP's Nagina seat. A staunch opponent of BJP. Wanted to contest elections under Bharat Gathbandhan but when SP-Congress did not pay attention, he jumped into the election fray without any alliance. Always did anti-BJP politics but if the sting of 'insult' from SP-Congress is deep, then he can also go with NDA.


9- Asaduddin Owaisi. Chief of AIMIM. Won from Hyderabad. There is no question of joining NDA.

Four MPs from YSRCP

10. Gumma Thanuja Rani
11. YS Avinash Reddy
12. Gurumurthy Maddila
13. PV Midhun Reddy

YSRCP supported the government inside the Parliament on every important occasion during PM Modi's second term. Party chief Jagan Mohan Reddy has good relations with PM Narendra Modi. This time YSRCP's arch rival Chandrababu Naidu's TDP is with the NDA. If Naidu ever distances himself from the NDA, then Jagan can become the savior of the Modi government.

One MP from Shiromani Akali Dal

14- Harsimrat Kaur Badal. Won from Bathinda, Punjab. Shiromani Akali Dal has been a part of NDA for a long time. It fought the last election in alliance with BJP, but this time it fought separately. BJP could not even open its account and Akali Dal was reduced to just one seat. Akali Dal, one of the oldest allies of BJP, had broken ties with NDA on the issue of agricultural laws. Akali Dal's return to NDA cannot be ruled out.

One Member of Parliament from Bharat Adivasi Party

15- Rajkumar Roat. Won from Banswara, Rajasthan. Equal distance from both BJP and Congress.

One MP from the Voice of the People Party (VOTPP)

16- Ricky Andrew. Won from Shillong seat of Meghalaya. VOTPP's rival NPP is already a part of NDA. So the possibility of VOTPP joining NDA is less.

1 MP from Zoram People's Movement

17- Richard Vanlalhmangaiha. He won on the ticket of the ruling Zoram People's Movement in Mizoram. If needed, he can also join the NDA government at the Center.
