In the Lok Sabha elections, BJP got 240 seats which is 32 seats less than the majority figure of 272. However, NDA crossed the majority figure with 292 seats. There will also be a meeting of the NDA constituents this evening in which Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu will be present.

Chandrababu's TDP has become the second largest party with 15 seats and Nitish's JDU has become the third largest party in NDA with 12 seats. Both these parties are necessary for BJP at this time because without them it is difficult for BJP to form the government.
