``India'' - ``NDA'':Which team is ahead?

``India'' - ``NDA'':Which team is ahead?

Both the 'India' alliance of the opposition parties and the "NDA" led by the ruling BJP have entered the field to face the parliamentary elections. Currently, there are 26 parties in ``India'' alliance and 38 parties in NDA.

Apart from these, the ruling YSR Congress in Andhra, the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi in Telangana, the ruling Biju Janata Dal in Odisha, the secular Janata Dal in Karnataka, the Bahujan Samaj Party in UP, and the Azaduddin Owaisi-led AIM.I.M. parties have not joined either team and remain separate.

2019- In the Parliamentary General Election, BJP won 303 seats and Congress won 52 seats. But the political environment during the last election is no longer there. Although the BJP is the strongest party with 303 seats in Parliament, it is in power in only 10 states. So, NDA getting more votes like last time is not an ordinary thing. Even now there is no chance of the old vote bank remaining intact. It cannot be said that they have support in all states as before. BJP will get more seats in Gujarat and UP.

Currently, the Samajwadi Party and the Congress are part of the 'India' alliance. Samajwadi is the dominant party in UP. After the victory in Karnataka, the influence of the Congress has increased there, party leaders say. Perhaps if Samajwadi and Congress join forces, it is likely to give tough competition to BJP.

Similarly, BJP has a good influence in Gujarat. At the same time, Aam Aadmi Party got 12 percent votes there. If Congress and Aam Aadmi Party form an alliance, they can give competition to BJP.

BJP has a smooth relationship with Jaganmohan Reddy in Andhra Pradesh. But if BJP joins alliance with Chandrababu Naidu, Jaganmohan Reddy will become enemy. There, BJP and Chandrababu Naidu do not have a large vote bank.

It will be a tough match between the two teams in Maharashtra." India"  alliance is strong in Tamil Nadu. Edappadi Palaniswami will now have to prove his influence. Both Communist and Congress are strong in Kerala. There, NDA does not have a large vote bank. In Telangana, there is a tough competition between the Congress and the ruling PRS. BJP does not have a big vote bank there. Congress party is strong in Karnataka.

BJP has lost influence in Madhya Pradesh. There, the polls suggest that the Congress will return to power. Aam Aadmi Party is strong in Punjab. There, BJP is weak. The Akali Dal, which was in the NDA last time, has since left the alliance. It is not known whether it will come back to the BJP alliance. Congress party is influential in Himachal Pradesh.


There are 25 constituencies in North Eastern states. Now the Manipur violence is causing opposition to the BJP. As there are more Christians living there, if the General Civil Code is introduced, there will be an environment of increasing opposition to the BJP. No one can deny that the BJP alliance is shocked now that the opposition parties are getting stronger. However, the strength of the BJP cannot be underestimated.


``India'' alliance is fielding with the sole objective of defeating the BJP. As per the current situation, political commentators are sifting and analyzing which of the two parties has more vote bank.

The Indian voters have started putting these two teams on both sides of the scale. Which side will gain weight?
