Lok Sabha Election Results Analysis Live Updates: As curtains closed on the Lok Sabha elections, the NDA looked set for a third term with 293 wins. The BJP, on its own, stopped short of a majority mark with 240 wins, which means Chandrababu Naidu and Nitish Kumar could be the men who would prop up Narendra Modi in New Delhi. As BJP leans on allies, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Janata Dal (United) have decided to press for the post of the Speaker of the Lok Sabha.

The 2024 Verdict is as much about the INDIA bloc story. Defying all predictions, the Opposition put up a power fight and claimed 233 seats. The Congress party almost doubled its 2019 tally, grabbing 99 seats. Party leader Rahul Gandhi recorded twin wins in Kerala’s Wayanad and Uttar Pradesh’s Rae Bareli with a margin of over 3 lakh votes in each. Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday evening, Rahul Gandhi said, “This was a fight to save the Constitution of the country and has emerged victorious in it. The country has said that they do not want Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah to run the country,” said Rahul Gandhi in a press conference. The power fight by the INDIA bloc was also led by the Samajwadi Party, which dislodged BJP to win the highest number of seats (37) in Uttar Pradesh.

Meanwhile, the BJP’s loss in Faizabad — the seat of the Ram Mandir, which consecrated just few months before elections — is seen as an ideological defeat for the party. Behind the defeat are echoes of unemployment, inflation, land acquisition and talk of “changes in the Constitution”. Scroll on to read analysis from our political editors and reporters to help make sense of the verdict.

Lok Sabha Election Results 2024 Live Analysis: INDIA bloc puts up a power fight, upsets NDA tally; BJP leans on allies to form govt; Scroll on for real-time analysis of the poll results.

With the BJP likely to fall behind the majority mark, the formation of a new Narendra Modi government will now depend on the support of two veteran kingmakers — the Telugu Desam Party or TDP’s Chandrababu Naidu and Janata Dal (United) or JD(U)’s Nitish Kumar, both partners of the BJP in the NDA.

Naidu and Nitish could be the men who would prop up Narendra Modi in New Delhi.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and its allies, the JanaSena Party (JSP) of Pawan Kalyan and BJP, are headed for a landslide in Andhra Pradesh, in what is a complete reversal of the 2019 results.

This is quite a turnaround for the TDP-led alliance, which was almost written off months before the elections after its chief N Chandrababu Naidu’s arrest.

Jagan seemed to have lost focus on governance issues in trying to implement his nine welfare schemes, dubbed Navaratnalu (nine gems), which he had promised during his padyatra ahead of the 2019 polls. In doing so, the CM seems to have overlooked the demands of the large majority of the population, who sought employment, civic infrastructure and development. In its five years in power, the YSRCP government failed to draw any big investments or initiate new projects in the state.
