Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 356,392 views on Wednesday, 5 June 2024 our article of the day is National Democratic Alliance.

The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) (ISO: Rāṣṭrīya Lokatāṁtrika Gaṭhabaṁdhana) is a right-wing conservative Indian political alliance led by the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). It was founded in 1998 and currently controls the government of India as well as the government of 19 Indian states and one Union territory.

Its first chairman was then Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee. L. K. Advani, the former Deputy Prime Minister, took over as chairman in 2004 and served until 2014, and Amit Shah has been the chairman since 2014. The coalition ruled from 1998 to 2004. The alliance returned to power in the 2014 general elections with a combined vote share of 38.5%. Its leader Narendra Modi was sworn in as Prime Minister of India on 26 May 2014. In the 2019 general election, the alliance further increased its tally to 353 seats with combined vote share of 45.43%. In the 2024 general election, the alliance lost 60 seats, but the alliance won enough seats to form a coalition government, the first in over 10 years.
