PM Modi tenders his resignation to President, likely to take oath on June 8 2024

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Council of Ministers resigned on Wednesday, submitting their resignation to President Droupadi Murmu. The President accepted their resignation and asked them to stay on until the new government takes over, according to a press release.

Modi is expected to be sworn in as Prime Minister for a third consecutive term on the evening of June 8, according to sources from India Today. The NDA barely reached the majority mark with 292 seats, while the BJP did not achieve a majority on its own. If the NDA forms the government, Modi will become the second leader, after former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, to serve three terms.

Top leaders of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will meet this evening to review the Lok Sabha election results and discuss government formation.

JD(U) chief and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, along with TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu, the next Andhra Pradesh chief minister, will attend the meeting. Other top BJP leaders and allies are also expected to be present.

They are expected to congratulate Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is set for a record-tying third term, and discuss the details of the new government with him. The new government is likely to include a larger share of the BJP’s allies and differ in composition and character.

While the NDA has comfortably surpassed the majority mark of 272 in the 543-member Lok Sabha, the BJP has, for the first time since 2014, fallen short of the required number and must rely on its allies to form the government.

The TDP, JD(U), Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena, and Chirag Paswan-led LJP (Ram Vilas) have won 16, 12, seven, and five seats respectively, making them crucial for government formation.
