Indian Elections: Two Parties Endorse Modi For 3rd Term As Prime Minister

  • Regional allies, TDP, United, say pre-poll alliance with BJP intact
  • Exit polls gift Modi historic third term victory 

Frontline Candidate, Narendra Modi is on the way to winning an historic third term as India’s Prime Minister following his formal endorsement by two key alliance parties.


Reports quoted spokespeople of the two main regional allies in Modi’s coalition as announcing his endorsement to emerge and continue as next Prime Minister.

The decision was taken on Tuesday after trends showed Modi’s party was falling short of a majority in the ongoing general election.

Both parties, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Janata Dal (United), said their pre-poll alliance with Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was intact and they would form the next government.

The clarification on their latest position follows speculations by the local media that the opposition alliance, which is doing much better than expected, was also in touch with them.

Born on 17th September 1950, Narendra Damodardas Modi is an Indian politician who has been the 14th Prime Minister of India since May 2014.

Modi, who served as the Chief Minister of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014, is the Member of Parliament (MP) for Varanasi and also a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a right wing Hindu nationalist paramilitary volunteer organisation.

He is the longest-serving Prime Minister from outside the Indian National Congress (INC).
