Forget the federal front, let’s talk about the other coalition

he past months are dominated by news of the emerging united federal front against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). As Chanakya has seen earlier, by the dominant force in 2013, since late 2013, and governing 20 states (directly or with the ally), the BJP is to be beaten by party. With the election less than a year away, it is understandable that opposition parties are looking for alliance with BJP in the coalition. Many by-elections seem to be pinpointed a winning strategy – a united alliance against the BJP. And so, work is afoot to build just like a front.

There’s another coalition, though, that has not been in the news much more than this week. That’s the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA). It was a grouping of 18 parties in 2014, although the BJP’s dominant dominance has often made it seem to be there in fewer parties. The BJP won 282 seats in 336 seats. Indeed, six of the allies did not win a single parliamentary seat. Since then, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), which has 16 parliamentarians in 2014, has sent the NDA from the split.
