Demands Of Naidu And Nitish To Be With NDA

Demands Of Naidu And Nitish To Be With NDA

After the recent Lok Sabha elections, India's political scene is changing dramatically. The BJP did not win an absolute majority and now needs the support of the TDP and JD(U) to form a government.

TDP led by Chandrababu Naidu and JD(U) led by Nitish Kumar are crucial to this process.

The BJP is working hard to secure support from TDP and JD(U) but the opposition INDIA bloc, with 234 seats, is also trying to win them over. 

Reports indicate that INDIA bloc leaders are in talks with Naidu and trying to persuade Kumar to leave the NDA. Given Kumar’s unpredictability, it is unclear what he will decide.

The TDP won 16 seats and needs stability, which the BJP can offer. But TDP might demand special status for Andhra Pradesh and important ministerial roles. 

Although TDP is currently with NDA their history of switching sides could lead them to consider INDIA bloc's promises, say the political analysts.

Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) with 12 seats lost four seats but remains strategic. Kumar seeks three Cabinet seats and special status for Bihar. 

The INDIA bloc might have offered him the Deputy Prime Minister's position causing speculation about his next move. 

Despite a possible continuation with NDA, Nitish Kumar’s unpredictable nature keeps both sides on edge.

The decisions of TDP and JD(U) will significantly impact the government formation as both parties weigh their options between NDA and INDIA. 

The coming days will reveal the alliances that will shape India’s political future.
