Narendra Modi promises to retain power in India even if the BJP loses its majority

Narendra Modi vowed to remain India’s prime minister even after his party lost its majority in parliament, forcing him to rely on allies to form a government for the first time since he came to power a decade ago.

A coalition led by Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party secured enough seats to form a government if it stays together, although the party fell short of the 272-seat majority on its own. The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance was on course to win 293 seats, while the opposition bloc known as the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance was on course to win 229 seats, the results showed.

Modi claimed victory for his coalition in a post on X, calling it a “historic achievement” and promising to “move forward with new energy, new enthusiasm and new determination.”
