All is not going well in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), now the leaders of the Alliance are also speaking openly. The meeting of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on Sunday before the Parliament session showed the impact of the separation of BJP and Shiv Sena. While NDA allies in the meeting advocated increased coordination, Prime Minister Narendra Modi described the ruling coalition as 'one big family'. Shiv Sena did not participate in the meeting. In the meeting, Modi said that NDA allies may have different ideologies but they are like a 'big family' and should not be bothered by small differences.
After this, PM tweeted, 'NDA had a very good meeting. Our alliance represents the diversity of India and the aspirations of 130 crore Indians. Together we will leave no stone unturned to bring qualitative changes in the lives of our farmers, youth, women power and the poorest of the poor. After the meeting, Chirag Paswan , the newly appointed head of the Lok Janshakti Party, said that a convener is needed to maintain the alliance.
Chirag said, appoint a convener NDA
Chirag Paswan said that there should be better coordination between the allies of the alliance and the NDA needs to appoint a convenor for this work. He said that first the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) left the NDA, later Upendra Kushwaha's Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) split from the NDA. Upendra Kushwaha left the coalition at the end of 2018, alleging neglect in seat-sharing in the Lok Sabha elections. Earlier in March 2018, TDP left the NDA after Andhra Pradesh did not meet the demand for special state status.
In Bihar, even though BJP and Nitish Kumar's party JDU are together, reports of estrangement keep coming. JDU got a ministerial quota in the Modi cabinet after the Lok Sabha elections 2019, which Nitish Kumar refused to take and decided to remain an ally in the alliance.
