BJP Shockingly Falls Short: PM Modi to take Oath on 8th June

So, the 2024 Lok Sabha elections just wrapped up, and boy, was it a nail-biter! For the first time since 2014, the PM Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) didn’t hit that magic majority mark. They fell 32 seats short of the 272 needed, leaving everyone buzzing about what’s next for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party.

Modi’s Next Move: Oath Day Drama

Word on the street is that PM Modi is gearing up to take the oath for a third term on June 8, which lands on a Saturday this year. Sources spilled the tea to NDTV, and the anticipation is already building. Can you believe it? Modi, who’s been steering the ship since 2014, is set for another run even though the BJP’s victory lap isn’t as grand as before.

The Numbers Game: Who Won What?

Let’s break down those results. Out of the 542 constituencies declared, the BJP snagged 240 seats. That’s quite a dip from their 2019 high of 303 seats and even their 2014 score of 282 seats. Meanwhile, the Congress party is having a bit of a moment. They jumped to 99 seats, a significant climb from the 52 they secured in 2019 and way up from the 44 in 2014. Talk about a comeback!

Modi’s Victory Speech: Thanking the Faithful

Despite the lower numbers, Modi isn’t backing down. He’s staked his claim to form the government, thanking the people for their support and calling it a win for the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA). In his victory speech at the BJP headquarters, he said, “On this sacred day, it is confirmed that NDA is forming the government for the third time. We are grateful to the people, they reposed full faith in the BJP, and NDA.”

He went on to call it a victory for the world’s largest democracy and a testament to the people’s strong belief in India’s Constitution. “This is the victory of the resolve of Viksit Bharat, of ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas’,” he added. It’s clear he’s looking at the bigger picture, despite the seat drop.

What’s Next? The Gossip Mill Spins

So, what’s next for the BJP and Modi? With 32 seats short, alliances are going to be the talk of the town. Who will they partner with to form a stable government? And how will Congress leverage their newfound strength? The political scene in India is buzzing, and the next few weeks are sure to be filled with backroom deals, strategic alliances, and maybe a few surprises.
